That's some picture that you took - that last one. Wish I knew more about helicopters, but I don't and guess that that's why I started this thread last year, because I was getting freaked out by them constantly hovering.
I used to live right near a hospital, so I had gotten used to the medical/rescue ones going by. I do know what those look like, they are not the ones I was first inquiring about. I also from time to time see police copters. They are pretty easy for me to spot (I think) because they are usually white, but that's sort of irrelevant because what makes them so noticeable to me is those flashing red and blue lights. Also, if they get low enough, they say in black letters something like OKC POLICE - very obvious.
But, I have never seen one that looks anything like that picture. Of course, I don't go out and look every time I hear one, which is about every night.
The ones I was writing about originally, and the same ones that I still hear, are not police, news or medical. However, they do seem to be either an off-white or silverish color. They don't look particarly "Military", like in the piicture above, however, I'm not much familiar with what all the military has in their arsenal as far as helicopters or anything else.
The thing that still gets me, is how they will come and circle, usually very low for about maybe about 6 - 10 times right above where I live, then they will make a change in the sound of the motor, which by having looked in the past, I associate with "hovering". They will stay right there for anywhere from about 10 minutes to about 45 minutes. If I go outside, while they are hovering, often, they will suddenly point their nose down, as if trying to spotlight me. However, I'm sure that I would be paranoid to think that they are. I'm sure it's just part of what they do - some exercise, maybe? Besides, others in the complex say the same thing.
