Hi! This is my first post ever and if this is in the wrong section, I hope someone will let me know.
Anyway, for the past 11, nearly 12, years I have lived in a decently-sized gated community in California. We live very close to a military base, so
having a few of those double-bladed "transport"-like military choppers fly over us was not something out of the ordinary. However, they would always
fly at a high altitude, so as to not bother the community I reckon. But never in all the 11 years that I have lived here, have I seen single-bladed
choppers that looked like they were geared for combat flying overhead. Flying very close to us, at that! There were two of them. My amateur guess
would have to be 150 feet off the ground (however close it was, the boom was nearly deafening if you were to step outside).
While I was in my backyard, I was able to see a couple of my neighbors also standing outside, staring at the choppers. It was definitely not something
we're used to.
I really wish I had taken a picture or two, but they woke me up from a nap and I was out of it. All I could think to do was to rush outside to go
watch them. They circled our community maybe 6 times. After they were done with us, I thought I heard them off in the distance multiple times.
Anyway, to sum it up, my main point is that I've never seen combat choppers that could have been ready for action (I'm no expert) fly over our
heads. But in addition to that, I've never seen them fly so LOW!
Something to know is that there have been more and more choppers passing over our heads in the recent weeks, but I don't think I've seen a set of
these before. And they definitely have not flown this low before.
Any ideas as to what this could have been? Thanks!
