    Default Why is thee a chopper flying over my house?

    I don't know why helicopters make me so curious, but it little bit kills me with curiosity every time one flies overhead.

    I know that there are apps and websites for tracking aircraft, but these don't show helicopters, as far as I'm aware? Is there a way to find out the operator/high level flight plan data so I can feed the curiosity?

    I've also noted quite a few more choppers in our area. Not sure why though.

    The way the country is going now, it is just a pity it is not the choppers from General Pinochet's Caravana de la Muerte

    When a chopper flies in our area it is usually a tracking company / police after a high jacking. Our suburb is right next to the R21 highway.
    It's in pubs where the world's greatest ideas begin.

    Why is the thread title written in Shakespearean English?
    My name is Rainier and I drive a Frotuna.

    Why are you always in such a bad mood? Experience...

    Regularly over our home - most likely related to issues on the N3 highway and / or hijacked vehicles.

    Since the relocated the airport - no longer passenger jetliners though.
    Answering the call of the wild is just so much beter than answering the telephone.
