    Have any of you had a helicopter circling your house and what and how did you do about? I reported to the FAA and they said that I would have to get some information about the helicopter for them to track it. How the hell do I do that when they were circling my house at night.

    we had military helicopters circling after 9/11 and we still get them periodically.

    sometimes we get nypd helicopters.

    i don't do anything about it.



    but if the black helicopters start flying around.....

    Yep. We live near an estuary and some old guy with alzheimer's got out of his house. They were afraid he wandered into the mudflats. Thank goodness they found him a few block away, but the helicopter was doing some major searching for the poor guy.

    Yes. In mid 2008, there was some middle of the night police search underway in North Oakland. A helicopter circled over our neighborhood with bright search lights for about two hours.

    It was freaky scary.

    Generally, if you have a helicopter circling around your block, you should lock your doors and windows. Why? Because most of the time, it's because they're chasing a criminal. Other times it's like Grace said, and someone has gotten lost.

    Bet if you look at the police blotter, you'll find out they were chasing bad guys.

    If a helicopter is circling your house, it's too late to save the Meth Lab.

    Yup. We live near a small airport and once in awhile they like to practice drills of some sort . . for emergencies I suppose . . .at like 10pm. Circle, circle, circle, land, takeoff, circle, circle, circle, land, takeoff . . . .ad nauseum. I call the airport and complain and ask them to stop. They usually do.

    All the time, maybe it has something to do with the Hospital Heliport down the Street. ;)

    LifeStar flights go from the hospital, directly to where they're needed, and then straight back to the hospital.

    No circling at night or any other time, because it would waste time and they might miss the "Golden Hour".

    If it's circling a house, it pretty much a good bet that it's the police.
