A couple days back I was on my patio grilling and this bird came over the hill to the north of me.
It was olive drab, but metallic or glossy with a horizontal white stripe each tail fin.
It was hovering over a neighbor of ours, lets say half mile a way, for a good 3 min or so. Very low as well, just above power line level.
It then continued south and went behind a hill to the east of me and it was gone for a couple min, honestly looked like it landed behind the hill.
Popped out and headed south with some pass.
North of me is a Border Patrol checkpoint and the station is another 20 miles or so north of that.
Camp Pendleton would be south west of me and MCAS Miramr about 40 miles south. Just to give you an idea of who would be flying around.
I do have pictures, but by the time I got my phone he was far away.
Hopefully these help
I have a few more but it is of it going down behind the hill and it blends in very nicely with the hills and the brush.
Oh and the guy I could see in the bird, only got a good look at the guy in the door, was wearing what looked like what the marine pilots wear
The guy on the right, the lighter color suit.
