Hunt Fans Plot to Commit Murder

12/2/09

Check out the views of some upstanding hunt supporters. The following come from a pro hunt blog which we were monitoring prior to the death of a hunt thug in Warwickshire in March for which an anti hunt pilot was locked up charged with murder. This lot are still at large...
Monitors in Micro-lights
Dec 25th, 2008, 9:40am

Yesterday saw a concerted effort by `Hunt Monitors` in Cheshire and there were at least 3 microlights over the county acting as spotters/observers. These had radio links with `anoraks` on the ground who were carrying the usual camera equipment. Cheshire Hounds and Cheshire Forest were targeted specifically we think; but `another hunt` was also disrupted by them. Well worth everyone noting for future reference. Some further intelligence was gathered by friendly forces too and will be shared by more secure means.

I'll have to have a word with the lads and see if there are any SAMs (Surface to Air Missiles - ed) left over from the Struggle...there's bound to be a few knocking around
How much of a lead would you have to give a microlight?

Mm - I'd take that with a pinch of salt unless you can corroborate it directly. For one thing use of a microlight for any purpose other than a pleasure flight would have a direct effect on the insurance of the pilot in command if the slightest thing went wrong. I fear a SAM probably wouldn't get a lock on to a microlight - the radar/heat signature would be way too small.
It's quite a serious offence to interfere with the operation of any aircraft and for the aircraft to attempt to interfere with any ground based activity. Not to mention b****y silly and dangerous. If the microlight flew low enough to cause a nuisance - take the registration and report it to the Civil Aviation Authority they take that kind of thing very seriously and would revoke the pilot's licence if neccessary.

I can phone Uncle Achmed and see what he has Knocking around in the bunker.

nah if they came close enough i reckon i could bring one down with a air rifle cus if an iraqi reckons he can bring down a hercules with one i can bring down a microlight. and anyway i doubt an anti could fly one, 90% of them are pot smoking new age hippies.

We live in south Cheshire and there's microlights buzzing round most days. Though I didn't spot any whilst out hunting yesterday
If the antis are going to start an air war, let them. They can have their micro-lights. Our obvious answer to the air superiority issue is clear ....... Harriers. Dec 25th, 2008, 7:05pm:

I dont need corroboration as I witnessed it myself and met his ground contact........... but enough said about that for now. The points youve raised are interesting and will be well worth considering if it happens again. Thanks for the good advice.
We need to get some good binocs and make sure the reg. mark is taken down if we get any other airborne observers.

We've got a helicopter type aircraft out with us today, and we're on foot!! Thames Valley Police came to our meet, even though we are in Warwickshire Police jurisdiction, and were told that we were out on hound exercise, and hadn't laid any trails, although, once we were out, trails will probably be laid to give the hounds a run, and, as I'm still at home clearing up from the meet, I've just been told that the usual suspects are out in vehicles, and there's this helicopter type aircraft hovering. We'll have to try to get photos of it with any identifying marks, and will try to post it on here later.

Has anyone come across this character at all. He was flying above us today while we were on hound exercise on foot in the snow, and was constantly in touch by radio with one of the two monitors we had out with us. We don't know if there's a camera on board or not, but all they would have got was a pack of hounds being exercised in the snow from the meet, over a hill to another supporter's property, and they would have got them walking back over the hill again back to the lorry if they hadn't realised they were wasting fuel flying over a group of people having a drink! One follower said that something similar was out with the Meynell last week. Is this the way they're gathering information now.....
