Anyone else notice alot of helicopter traffic lately? I live on the North Side and first noticed it a couple of months ago....loud, flying low, maybe 2-3 within a short time frame. Mostly at night but sometimes on the weekend.
If someone knows if we're in some sort of flight path, that would be nice to know!

I have noticed it too. They're military helicopters, coming from the south west and going straight over my home too. I actually saw two today, and I am down, south of Wilmington!

I first thought it was the hospital but I can see the hospital from where I live, so I know they are not coming from there.

Secret Id...I think they are military as well, I then thought it had to do with the National Cemetary but if your in So Wilmington, it's not the cemetary.

Unicorporated, they might be blackhawks but why would they be flying this far south from the Great Lakes Military base...is that even still active?

Glad to hear someone else has noticed.

Yes, it's a naval training base. I'm in Manhattan, the wife and I heard them last night as well. They were extremely low. Not sure why, but they were so low the house vibrated when they passed over. Weird

They are Military choppers. I seen them a LOT going over. I'm in New Lenox. There is a training base for them in Manhattan, But it is weard they fly far east of here. And come from west of here. They do hovering and manuvers west of here by the naval base. I fly remote helicopters and love watching them go over. But 2 or 3 weeks ago twice I seen f-15 fighters go by. Not sure what that is about but you could see they were armed. But I think thay always are.

It took eleven responses before someone bitched about it. Usually it happens in the first two replies. Thank goodness "Taxed" was here to make sure someone cried about it.

They are blackhawk helicopters on training exercises. If you google it plenty of news articles come up on the subject. Officials claim it has nothing to do with the NATO conference coming up. These training exercises are going on in and around major cities across the US.

They can fly over my house all they want. Love those things. Welcome to land in front of my house and stop in for some coffee too.
