This happened Tuesday around Noon time.. Freaked out my friends! They said all day they could hear Black hawks, and saw them.. a Chinook flew at about 3000ft right over one of their homes.. was slow too. They saw them, and wondered whats going on...

So, anyone in central Florida seeing lots of activity? I scared them, saying that asteroid Apophis is gonna hit em, and the Military is getting the hell out of town as a joke.. they actually believed me for a bit. lol...

Anything? Plant City, Lakeland, Winter Haven, Orlando or Tampa?

Just thought I would ask.. could be just an exercise. or not.....

I don't know what's going on in Florida, I have seen some military movement, and lots of truck drivers are seeing more that usual activities along our highways, for the past year or so,true that's just hearsay, maybe massive maneuvers.

About a month ago in Haines City (2 miles S. of I-4) I saw 6 military helicopters flying in a straight line formation heading from NE to SW probably toward MacDill.

Also, I've seen more convoys on HWY 27. There are a couple of military storage installations nearby however. I have a friend who has served in the US Army for 16 years as an intel analyst, but he says he hasn't seen/heard anything unusual lately.

Interesting! Just wondering... Got a text an hour ago, and they said they saw two more Helo's today. UH-60M or HH-60 rotor sounds.. must be getting ready to bring back all the armor from Afghanistan maybe.. Moving stuff around to make room? dunno... Interesting though.

I live in Deltona (recently moved from Palm Bay), my wife & I saw 2 groups of large reddish orange lights a few nights ago. She wouldn't stay outside, she was so freaked out. I thought maybe Chinese lanterns at first, but they where in formation first, then moved off in different directions individually. It was nuts.

I don't even care if I don't have video, it was worth it just to stand there and watch. I wish my wife would've gotten some though. Sister lives in Davenport & she saw the same thing. Weird stuff.

Orlando Executive Airport looked like a Navy/Marine base Friday and Saturday.

There are 14 TH-57s (Navy orange and white Jet Ranger helicopter trainers)
2 T-6 Texan II Navy trainers
Two V-22 Ospreys have been in and out - went down to Key West and back

I saw a very low flight of 3 UH-60 Blackhawks near Reunion/SW Disney Hwy 192 area heading SE today. I saw another 3 UH-60 Blackhawks west of Fantasy of Flight last Wednesday

My coworker told me that two CH-47 Chinooks came in to Orlando Executive last week (for University of Central Florida ROTC show and tell) as well as a C-23 Sherpa small twin engine Army transport based on the Shorts 330. We also had a UH-72 Lakota helicopter at Orlando Executive.

I personally think it is cool to see these military aircraft since I am an aircraft photographer. An F-18 came in to Orlando international last week. Last summer I saw a real unusual plane land at MCO - An E-3 Awac - a Boeing 707 with a big radar dome on top of it.
