I live in Murreita close to you...I have noticed increased activity, they come in low and fast late at night, circle for a while then go.

Over here in So. Cali, just over the hill from Pendleton and no increase in helo activity. If anything, I'd have to say it's been unusually quiet the past few months. They used to drop Marines in the hills around where I live so they could hike to a destination, but little to none of that the last few years actually.

So on three occasions now this has happened.
I'm sitting in my house, reading or working and I hear a helicopter for a really long time. Like 15 minutes. I go outside and there's a helicopter circling. I mean its making big loops but flying directly over my backyard everytime. I get my binoculars. It'll make another pass or two and then go back toward the city.
I live in Denver and have read some threads recently that suggest this isn't just in my area.
So that keeps happening to me. Anything happen to you lately?
Holy $&@#, YES! I am in Castle Rock and I get this maybe 3-4 times per week. Right over my house. Here's what it does:
I'm close to Sedalia, just slightly to the west of CO-85 (Santa Fe) and it will come from the direction of Roxborough Park and fly straight towards my neighborhood. Once it hits my neighborhood, it always goes directly over my house, flying very, very low, I mean like 50 feet over the rooftops. Then it does a very quick and tight turn, flies diagonally to CO-85 and Castle Pines, and then whips back towards Roxborough.
Sometimes, they come west of here, in the foothills, fly over my neighborhood, back towards the Roxborough direction and then back again. On Friday, it was the lowest and closest pass by yet. The door was open on the side and I could see the a guy's pants (light brown) as the copter turned and leaned. The timing of that one was strange that day.
As I type this now, I can hear one. I don't know why, but it makes me so freaking bothered and paranoid, I feel like I'm in the scene from "Goodfellas"

I'm in Fort Worth and there's all kinds of things constantly flying over me. I'm kind of in the middle between NAS-JRB/Carswell, DFW International, Alliance, and Meacham, so I fully expect there to be a lot of commotion overhead, but this just seems like its more. I'm more than willing to chalk it up to me being older and noticing things more, but there's still this part of me that says somethings different. The main thing is that (1) most of the time they are LOUD (shake my walls loud), and (2) most times its between 12-3am. The time of night that it happens is what's really weird to me.
The other thing is the railroad tracks I live by are constantly busy, again with trains running even at 3am. I know its an incredibly busy line (follows US 377 for a bit and eventually goes through downtown and the Stockyards), but there's still something about the increase in activity that makes me a little uneasy.

Im in Arizona and have noticed quite a bit of increased aerial (sp?) activity.Our prospective countries are fortifying our military,supply lines(trains) and communication systems(power lines) at such an incredible speed, it seems to be obvious that we are preparing for something. I believe they expect the public to panic.Other than this cheery thought,people do have to practice driving before they drive and the best time to do that is when no one else is on the road..But, yes, I believe there is cause for concern.
