    Default National Guard Helicopter Training Exercises?

     

    This morning, for about 30-45 minutes, a helicopter was circling quite low over our house/property (about an acre). A few times they looked like they were going to land in the yard. I finally got nervous enough that I called the local police to see of they knew of anything happening (like an escaped convict or whatever). They said they'd check into it and call back. A few minutes later, they called back to say it was just the National Guard doing training exercises. Now what I'm wondering is, why would they choose to circle over a residential area, and specifically one house/property, instead of flying over a vacant field or airstrip or whatever?

    Maybe it is just a cover, they wouldn't tell you if they were looking for someone on your property.

    I guess it all depends on where you live. If you live close by to a Military Training range, then I guess it would be normal...

    If you live in Eastern New Mexico, the Army is looking for a missing soldier right now...
