    Thats not bad. Where I live in Milford Sikorsky is only about 10 miles away and every day there are helicopters being tested over the water by my house. Weekly we need to adjust the china in the china cabinets to make sure nothing falls over as well as adjust picture frames on the wall. When we're "lucky" CH-53 Super Stallion's fly right over head and knock pictures of the walls.

    Mercy flight goes over my house about once a month. Rarely do I see the Military type go over but they have. Lots of money keeping them things flying.

    LOL, I love military hardware. I would have grabbed my camera as well! I've had 3 or 4 fly over my house at the same time and that was pretty loud. 12 would be absolutely nuts but super cool to watch! Must be a field training exercise; that is quite an assortment of choppers: Apaches, Chinooks, Blackhawks and possibly a Kiowa at the far right edge of the first pic.

    Maybe they were doing some type of urban training in preparation for the superbowl going to be happening? That's my guess.

    Either that or they've really cracked down on people with overdue library books.

    I live about 5 miles from Bell Hellicoptor's plant in Arlington, Texas and for a while we had twice-daily passes of those big twin rotor helicoptors, often two or three of them flying. Now it's just a couple of times per week.
