Ok, so I know there's been a lot of talk recently about increased military activity on American soil. Lots of people have been talking about how
they're seeing more and more military aircraft flying around in their neighborhood. Well, today while at work, I looked up bc I heard a helicopter
So first let me say that anytime I hear any type of aircraft, I usually look up. I've always been amazed by flying machines and it's just a normal
reflex of mine to look up anytime I hear one around. I've taken a couple of flying lessons (as much as I could afford) and I did my senior project in
high school on the life of an Air Force test pilot. My mentor was an F-16 test pilot up at Edwards AFB and he took me around the base and in the
hangar and showed me his plane and as much of the cockpit as I could get near without being fired at. It was awesome!
I'll get back to the point
as I'm getting off track. The main thing I wanna get across though is that I love flying and all types of aircraft but I'm no enthusiast so please
bear with me.
So back to today... when I looked up, I saw a military helicopter. It was a CH-46 Sea Knight (looked it up for the exact name) and was flying pretty
low the ground. Maybe it wasn't that exact one but it looked just like this, except grey:
I've seen these helicopters countless times but
that's because of the hundreds of times I've driven between San Diego & LA and there are military bases about halfway. Camp Pendleton being one of
them and I don't know what the Navy base is called but I know there is one bc Navy is written clearly on the wall/fence around the perimeter of it.
Anyway, by the time I got my phone out and waited for the dang camera to load, the copter was out of sight.
The thing is that last week on my way to school, I saw the same helicopter flying above the freeway. Again, about 3 months ago, I saw 3 military
helicopters flying in formation above the freeway down in the Anaheim area heading up more towards the inner city. Not inner inner city as Anaheim is
in the Orange County area but more towards LA if you guys get what I'm trying to say. That time they were different helicopters though. After
searching wiki, this helicopter resembles closely, if not exactly, what I saw that day. Except the ones I saw were all black:
So I've lived in the area all 22 years of my life, and to the best of my knowledge, I don't think I've ever seen any military helicopters flying
around our city. Like I said, I'm always looking up into the sky and it's weird that now, when everyone seems to be seeing the same thing above
their skies, I'm seeing it above mine. I know that there probably has been some and I just haven't seen them but again, for a person like myself,
who is always looking up at the sky and have been this way since I was kid, why all the increased activity? I just wanted to put out my experience as
everyone has been talking about it lately.
So my question is, what have you guys seen in your city as of late? If you have seen anything at all. Second question, what do you believe could be
going on? Maybe paranoia is creeping up on me but idk, it just seems like it's starting to become a regular thing when I really don't believe or
have seen it to be like this in the past.
