i know there are some aircraft experts here so i pose the question...

my wife and i are sitting here watching cnn and all of a sudden i hear it...the rotors of the chopper....loud...deep...somehow i knew it was a military chopper by the sound. i dont know how i knew that but i did.
we ran outside and looked up and sure as # it was a chinook......about 5 minutes later another one is overhead....

i live in northern ohio about 20 miles west of cleveland and about 5 miles away from lake erie...

i looked those chopper up and i took note of this

en.wikipedia.org...


Its primary roles are troop movement, artillery placement and battlefield resupply


interesting....

why would those things be moving around in this area? thankss

They fly regular missions for pilot proficiency, or moving from one base to another all the time. Pilots have to fly a certain number of hours a month to keep their rating.

G Company, 1st of the 137th is located in Canton. They fly CH-47Ds it looks like.

They fly is Texas ALL the time. Usually training on the weekends. Hell, you can go on the Internet and buy one for yourself.
Paint it black and fly low over conspiracy minded friends.

Maybe they are moving troops into Chicago.
Wasn't Mayor Rahm Emanuel saying just yesterday that he would welcome federal help with their crime/war problem?
Flying from Canton to Chicago would take them over the area you describe.

N. California, we had 3 C-130 Military transport planes land at the Redding Airport, which is very odd. Then we had a chinook fly by on the same day. Not saying anything is going on, but I live on the flight path and Ive never seen Military aircraft like this at our tiny airport.

They occasionally drop in on civilian airports, usually smaller ones to buy fuel. That allows them to keep their own reserves intact. With a C-130, they occasionally carry fuel bladders on board that they fill up, then go out to a forward landing area where they meet helicopters. They use fee bladders they're carrying to refuel the helicopters.

Northern corner of Cali same here, we had what sounded like a chinook and multiple fighter jets and after they went by another two sets withing 10 mins or so could not tell if they was heading out to sea or coming in I never did get to see any of them.
This is definitely unusual.
They have bases so near I can't imagine why land in Redding. A friend stationed in Germany is being sent somewhere "training" for a month, somewhere cold not much info. He is a pilot in the Army.
Must be some Trump mobilization plan.

Europe is starting the annual Atlantic Resolve exercises in Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, and other nations.

January is a higher exercise time for CONUS units. They see their annual budget, so they have flight hours again and are going to use them. There are also a number of tests going on right now over California. I watched a KC-10, 2 KC-135s, and an E-6B orbiting over Bakersfield for hours the other day, along with many other aircraft over California, and just off the coast.

As for Redding, as I said, they occasionally buy fuel from small civilian airports. I occasionally see fighters, up to C-17s in unusual locations, even with military bases near them.
