So this is a new development.
One of those two propeller ones just flew over and LOW. Really low. My house was shaking. It flew from the southeast over my house toward Denver. It was all black, no markings and really low. Seemed to be a personnel one, not a warship. This is crazy!
Also, thank you everyone who's posted. I dont think I'm paranoid and delusional anymore. Just paranoid
mountaingirl, thank you especially because we're in the same area. Now I know its not just meedit on 22-5-2012 by doctornamtab because: (no reason given)
choppers appeared over the horizon flying in formation.......their new home at Joint Base Lewis-McChord........The 1st Battalion, 229th Aviation Regiment flew 10 AH-64 Apache helicopters and six UH-60 Black Hawks to Gray Army Airfield, May 11, as part of the “Flying Tigers” move from Fort Hood, Texas, to JBLM. The trip that covered approximately 2,200 miles and took three days.
Over the next couple of months the unit will complete the move from Fort Hood to JBLM bringing with them the rest of its Apaches, Black Hawks and personnel to the base
About 400 of the battalion's more than 700 soldiers are making the move, taking with them 24 Apache helicopters and 10 Black Hawks.
The battalion also will benefit from diverse training environments, he said. In addition to Lewis-McChord's existing, expansive aviation training grounds, "We're working to acquire high-altitude training areas so (we) don't have to travel to Fort Bliss in El Paso or Fort Carson (Colo.) to do all the high-mountain training required for a deployment (to Afghanistan),"
The Department of the Army announced Wednesday the stationing of the 16th Combat Aviation Brigade at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, a phased action that will see the first unit elements activated at JBLM as early as June, with the final unit activated approximately September 2014. The 16th CAB will be split based, with its headquarters moving to JBLM but leaving an element at its current station of Fort Wainwright, Alaska, to support training there. Other units now stationed elsewhere will join the CAB at JBLM.
Plagued by one scandal after another, from violent mental breakdowns to steroid abuse and allegations of killing for sport, Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington state this year developed a reputation as the most troubled base in the military.

So far this has been reported in the US, Canada, and the UK. I get an uneasy feeling that somebody is preparing for some kind of big calamity or something. I don't know what, or when, but it just seems really strange.

It's the 21st century already and I don't have a personal jet pack.
That's a huge problem that needs to get fixed.
Next time they come around, make it entertaining. Run around in your yard naked, covered in X-mas tree lights, with a tin foil hat, and throw chocolate bars (which will look like something else) up at the sky in the direction of the helicopter.
Make it a show.
Wear a cape.
and a dastardly mustache.

I live about a minute away from the Los alamitos joint forces training base, and for the past couple of weeks I have been hearing nonstop helicopters, but only between like midnight and 4 am. They seem to come every couple of minutes, I can hear one as I type this. They seem to be a lot noisier than the aircraft I usually hear from the base.
I first started noticing it a couple weeks ago. One night I couldn't sleep, and around 3 am I opened my bedroom window for a smoke. I noticed a bright white light partially hidden by a tree. I didn't think anything of it, I thought it was from the construction they're doing on the 405 freeway. Than as soon as I really started to look at it, it started moving towards me like it spotted me. I quickly closed my window and laid in bed. A minute later I looked up only to see it was basically right over my house. It flew around my neighborhood all night long at a unusually low height. I saw it pass over my house numerous times.
Since then, I can hear them every single night. They're super loud, and they're starting to scare the crap out of me. I have the constant feeling that I'm being watched. Hopefully it stops soon, my insomnia has become a lot worse since they started.
