I was walking home last night, about 8:45pm, when I noticed the obnoxious helicopters. The occasional passing helicopter isn’t remarkable, but these seemed to be on joyrides, as they swooped low over and around downtown. And they sounded like lawn mowers. Huge, mosquito-like, helicopters. And it went on for hours. You’d think we were in Denver, or something.
The Oregonian is reporting that the police are saying it was a U.S. Department of Defense training exercise.
