OK, I'm not sure if this is a conspiracy or just an odd occurance that I don't know how to explain, but I figured it's worth posting somewhere on
I live in an apartment in a suburb just outside Portland. Last night, around 8 p.m., I was watching TV and using my computer when the unmistakable
sound of a (loud!) helicopter caught my attention. It was apparently close enough that it was causing my living room blinds to flap about!
So I looked out the window to see what all the commotion was about and there was an extremely low-flying copter within throwing distance of my window!
I'm not trained enough to offer a proper estimate of its flying height, but it was close enough to the ground that several of my neighbors were
already outside looking up at the thing, and we could all tell that it was unmarked and didn't appear to be a police or news helicopter.
Eventaully, curiosity got the best of me and I went outside and took a closer peek too. After a couple minutes hovering around, the helicopter
elevated to a more normal distance and flew away.
One neighbor speculated that it was an army helicopter and I heard another one say it looks like trouble, but I've got no idea who it might have
been. I've heard of the conspiracy behind "black helicopters" (although I'm not well-versed on it), but I'd doubt the one I saw was involved in
anything conspiratorial because it was black (or dark gray), but it wasn't even dark out yet. Hardly secretive behavior.
Has anyone had a similar experiance or at least have any ideas what I might have seen? I'm not concerned about anything, but I am really curious.
