OK, sitting at the computer late night again, I just heard something like distant gun shot. Now the police helicopter is circling around again not that far away. I can hear them pretty often these days, circling in the air. I had to finaly post this poll as I was thinking about it a lot to do so. nerd

I only hear a police helicopter when I'm watching Cops! or Real TV on the television. Now, Blackhawks and (I think they're) Apaches... daily. There are a bevy of those stationed at the Air Nat'l Guard base by my house. Cool to watch/hear.

I hear many choppers in this area. I think most of them are EMT LifeFlight 'copters that nearly all the local hospitals have. We are only about 50 miles south of Cleveland, also.

Yeah, those Flight-For-Life 'copters have a distinct engine note to 'em too, compared to 'regular' ol' 'copters. We'll hear a F4L one go by probably once a week or so.

Living about mid-way between Univ. of NC and Duke U - each having a med school - we see the life flight 'copters quite often. The UNC copter lands on the roof of a buidling close to the football stadium, so womtimes you'll see one taking off/landing during a game.

We have a small isolated city that is an hour away by road from a regional hospital and the Main Highway passes through our town, not only are there public health incidents etc but highway accidents and the Life-Flight helicopters pass within 400m of our house - its a 2min turn-around and they are off out at good speed heading back again - 16min either way.

We don't have police helicopters here (in Auckland City yes) but I heard the air ambulance at 2am on sat morning, stay awake thinking about it and a quick prayer for those in need.

I live pretty close to an air national gaurd facility so I hear them quite often. I got used to hearing them when I was in the Marines at Camp Lejeune, so I tend to tune them out now. ed

I live close to Hawthorne Municipal Airport and work right next to Santa Monica Airport. Needless to say there are always helicopters over head. As far as "Ghetto Birds" go, its a daily occurance in my area...and as I am typing this post one just went by.

Almost forgot to post here.. The other nihght they were bugging right above our house. The helicopter was making close circles around and pointing the reflector towards the near by park. They have to been on some search or chase. Few police cars made it back and fort on our street, but seems like nothing came out of it as the helicopter started to wonder further away with the high beam still on.

MIL has them up quite often too down in Orange County.

We usually only hear the odd air ambulance here. It's rare so you go looking for it. There is 1 tv station in Toronto that has a chopper but only police choppers that I know of and I don't think I've seen 1 of those. BTW, Toronto does not have 1. Weird eh?

No police helicopters here (cities around here are way too small), but we do have medi-copters and news choppers, Coast Guard, Navy, Marines and even personal mini-copters in the area. The main ones you'll see are the military and then the news choppers ... in that order.

Hmmm ... the State Police have airplanes to monitor the interstate traffic tho.

"Police" 'copters? not often since i moved my family out of The Bronx three years ago. while i lived there more often than i'd liked... and that's the reason we moved. nowadays we're more likely to hear traffic, medivac and military/gov'ment choppers flyin' in and out of Quantico.
