3 hueys (military choppers) over crown hill headed east. wonder what they’re off too09/14/2014 at 11:10 am #72969
They flew directly over my house. Very loud and a little intimidating.09/15/2014 at 11:41 am #72974
They were trying to intimidate you, Penny! Hide your Cockle Hat and don’t let this Scottish vote go to your head. READ: Greenwood will not fall into the hands of Welsh Separatists. That Bog stays in the USA!09/15/2014 at 3:53 pm #73006
Very likely not Hueys as that model is no longer in service. Possibly Chinooks from Paine Field Reserve Base in Everett.09/15/2014 at 4:34 pm #73025
Probably Apache or Black Hawks. The Chinooks are massive heavy lift helicopters.09/15/2014 at 5:23 pm #73027
I’m pretty sure they were Chinooks, the big beasties with twin rotors. Definitely loud for a weekend morning.09/15/2014 at 7:36 pm #73034
Expect to see more military helicopters over the neighborhood. They added a bunch more to JBLM a while back and they train constantly. Or surveil you. Take your pick. Just be glad its not the Russians.09/15/2014 at 7:52 pm #73036
actually, if there were three of them, it was most likely huey, duey, and louie.
you can blame their uncle donald, but it won’t get you too far.09/16/2014 at 1:45 am #73039
gi – exactly! I couldn’t tell from the thread title whether it would be Apocalypse Now or Make Way For Ducklings!09/16/2014 at 8:50 am #73042
They were Chinooks.09/16/2014 at 9:31 am #73043
Just another sign that when the famine and pestilence start we’ll have war too.09/16/2014 at 9:58 am #73046
Indeed, they were chinooks. Twin rotor massive beasts moving slowly. Seen them many times around here, seem to travel in pairs or threes. Sorry for the confusion. I actually know better.
PS I tried to edit the post right after, but it didn’t let me change the title, so I probably added to the confusion by putting “(military helicopters)” as a qualifier after in the actual post.
