By dannybear - 28 June 2010 26

Hi all. Last night i was woken at about 1:00 am by a helicopter flying over the house it kept flying back and forth over and over till about 6:00 am.

South care. flipping patients to the hospital would be my guess

I’d hazard a guess and say the Careflight ‘copper was in full flight – probably transporting some poor sod from the snow fields. I hope whoever they rescued, it turned out to be a good news story. Saturday and Sunday nights seem to be Careflight’s peak period, with all the weekend warriors out and about.

If it was going back and forth over and over as the OP actually said it wouldn’t be the Southcare chopper unless there was a major bus prang or something close by.

The red SES chopper has been operating around Canberra recently I think, perhaps they were doing night exercises.

I was safely ensconced in my tinfoil hat.

I’m in Garran and didn’t hear the helicopter so not likely patient transfer.

Maybe it’s Julia and the death squads rooting out Kev supporters?

Heard it in Banks as well. My sister saw police with sniffer dogs out in Gordon as well around 1.30am, so would assume they were looking for someone/something?

It was over the inner north around midnight. It was a loud one.
I hope they got what they wanted and don’t come back.

Do you know if that was in Mackney Place Gordon as well with the police and sniffer dogs. I looked out the window around that time and saw two people with flouro vests on and torches but thought they were checking out a blocked drain. I definitely heard the helicopter and saw it circling around. Must have been something bad for all the commotion!
