Weird airplane/helicopter activity in Pittsburgh & Columbus - + sun dogs + geese going nuts
Hey gang,

First the quick note - I've never seen sun dogs before and yet I saw one on two separate days this week. Pretty cool. I took pictures on my cell but it didn't come out good at all.

The main point of the thread - as I'm looking at the sun dog this afternoon I realize that there are some helicopters hovering over Oakland, PA. We're used to medivac helicopters so I usually ignore them but today there were two non-medivac helicopters with surveillance equipment hovering in one place for quite some time. I went up to the top of the hill - you can see up and down the Mon River really well from Homestead to the south all the way up to Downtown Pittsburgh and farther north - and there are 6-7 helicopters, all hovering in a line up the river. Not military but not media or medivac either. There was a huge unmarked plane flying very low over downtown and circling. After a few minutes it headed North West.

Sometimes helicopters are used to clear airspace for dignitaries/elite flights out of local airports. This plane most likely came out of Allegheny County Airport.

I called my brother who was traveling back to PA from Indiana on business to tell him about it. He saw the same thing over Columbus but there were four planes, all unmarked.

Anyone else see something in their area, or notice a movement of planes out of county/private airports?

Ya actually. A helicopter flew by about 2 hours ago. I couldn't tell what kind it was/whose it was. I heard it flying back again going the other direction and heard both a helicopter and what sounded like a small low flying aircraft. (northern IN here)

Thanks Hoosier! Let me know if you see anything else.

I don't usually post a detailed or local thing but it was very strange and I want to see if someone might have a guess.

Well, a week or two ago I saw a couple of flocks going south. That was when the major cold snap hit here. Not sure if it means anything that they are going north when the weather is getting so much warmer here now.

Hard to say but still interesting to note.

I went up to the top of the hill - you can see up and down the Mon River really well from Homestead to the south all the way up to Downtown Pittsburgh and farther north - and there are 6-7 helicopters, all hovering in a line up the river. Not military but not media or medivac either. There was a huge unmarked plane flying very low over downtown and circling. After a few minutes it headed North West

hey, maybe unrelated but I just came to this site to see if anyone in Portland OR noticed the same number of heli's moving up I5 in a similar line formation, around sunset. i've never seen that here before and was hoping for more info and found this thread..

any updates? maybe something to look for? i didn't see any plane though although it was hard to see cause of the sun going down

Re: Weird airplane/helicopter activity in Pittsburgh & Columbus - + sun dogs + geese going nuts
I live west of Philadelphia and have been seeing this helicopter scenerio since late fall. The ones I see are usually large and black with no writing or any clue as to who's they are, not even any numbers and yes I have seen them up close.

They hover over my town at night as well. Their lights are bright and they are high in the air. One might easily think they are ufo's but I watched one about a month ago until it moved toward me and over top and realized it was the same helicopters I see by day. These are so big that when they fly over my house my windows rattle.

I have also seen a single plane multiple times that seems like a type of observation or surveilance plane; no windows except for the cockpit area and bump outs on the sides that are very noticable.

The last three times I saw these in full force I made mental notes as to what was going on those particular days. The only theme was that we were having solar winds from a coronal hole in the sun and it was affecting our magnetosphere.

Could these helicopters be doing some sort of monitoring of the airspace to verify it is safe for planes to fly? I live near Philly Airport and all flights west go over my town. For the past two months planes are flying incredibly low compared to normal as well. Prior to the last few months I never actually heard the planes and could only see them. Now I hear every one of them as they are flying so low. Yesterday during the solar flares, they were flying so low I could hear the whining of the engine. I'm waiting for the next sun issue to see if I see them again.

I could see how the one I saw today could be called a "chem dog". The sky was covered with chem trails/contrails.

I was walking with my grandaughter about 12 Noon today and I noticed 2 helicopters hovering for about an hour....one over McLean, VA (near Nat'l CounterIntel Center)....the other over Rte 7 in Falls Church VA...they both looked to be military....what was weird was they seemed to be related (as if standing guard) to the 5-6 high flying, contrailing jets (fighters?)earlier....also about an hour ago a very loud low flying chopper going in same direction as the earlier noted jets....West

I don't know what's going on in your area concerning the air traffic. We have all sorts of choppers in our area even though we are not a big city, as well as a lot of military movement; five or six choppers flying in formation high up, Chinooks, even big C-130s and touch and go practice by unmarked military jets.

I do have a nice sun-dog smilie, though. I might as well post it while my temporary enhanced status remains.
