    Default Prince William lands his RAF Chinook helicopter in Kate Middleton's backyard


    PRINCE WILLIAM sparked fury last night after landing his 15,000-an-hour RAF helicopter in girlfriend Kate Middleton's back garden.

    A military source told us: "At a time when there is a lack of kit in Afghanistan and Iraq this is a total waste of money."

    The two-hour show-off stunt emerged just days after Wills was slammed for using another Chinook to fly himself and brother Harry to a stag weekend on the Isle of Wight.

    Kate and her parents Michael and Carole watched from their million-pound home as the poser prince practised a series of landings and take-offs on April 3 in the 10m chopper.

    A royal insider said: "William has been in the RAF for quite a few months and obviously wanted to show off his skills to his girlfriend.

    "There's nothing more macho than landing a helicopter in your girlfriend's back yard. He clearly hasn't lost the hunger to impress Kate.

    "If you've got to practise taking off and landing in a field, it might as well be one close to the prospective in-laws."





    One military source said: "At a time when the Armed Forces are short of money and there is a lack of kit in Afghanistan and Iraq this is a total waste of money. He uses a Chinook to land in his girlfriend's garden then travels to a stag party in one. Where will it end?"

    Aviation analyst and RAF-trained pilot Jon Lake slammed the flight as "ridiculous and inappropriate.

    Well this is contrary to the news report I heard. Apparently they ask permission to land in farmers pastures, and this landing was also approved for training purposes.

    Yeah right, and someone is going to say "NO" ?? "Training purposes"
    The royals don't live in a different world, they live in a different universe. They have no fucking clue about how this stuff is perceived. It's all a jolly jape to them.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    It's good to almost be the King.

    I can't stand these people (whether royalty or other celeb types ) who think they world is theirs and they don't need to follow the rules of the rest of the world... like landing planes and helicopters whereever they want.

    training purposes.... yeah right! sorry I just don't buy it.
