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?

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!

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.

Heard it here too. Not going anywhere, just round and round.

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

Might be looking for ‘indoor gardens’, do the cops in Canberra use helicopters? with FLIR?

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

I was safely ensconced in my tinfoil hat.

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’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.

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