Helicopters spotted over Edinburgh on Wednesday afternoon were confirmed by the MOD to be on routine transit between locations.
It comes days after the end of UK-led military exercise, which finished on May 4.
Aircraft flew from RAF Lossiemouth as part of Joint Warrior, a NATO exercise usually held twice a year in and around Scotland.
The exercise involved more than 11,600 military personnel from 17 nations in which Apache and Tornado jet squadrons also took part.
