There is a huge difference between a jet and a C130 or C5. I live near a base that had 8 of the C130's stationed there (in Ohio) (they are now geting C5's) and they fly drills all the time all hours of the day and night in all weather conditions. This is the only way for the pilots to practice maneuvers for what ever might come along in a combat situation. I have even seen them do night drills with no lights to practice coming in to an air base under black out. The "helicopter" sounds could have been echo (reverb) from the engines if it was indeed flying really low and the sounds could bounce off of the surrounding buildings.
Army Guard CH-47D Chinook heavy lift helicopters assigned to Bravo Company of the 1st Battalion, 126th Aviation, picked up Federal Emergency Management Agency supplies flowing into Stewart Air National Guard Base. The supplies were loaded into the Chinooks and flown to Belleayre Ski Center, a state-owned facility in Highmont, Ulster County.
