I remember as a kid, the Police had Dope detection equipment fitted to chopppers, and would regularly hover over properties in Wamboin for hours on end at night. Someone could have been spinning us kids a Furphy back then, but maybe it was true, and the LCD detectors are now being used, judging by the types of drop kicks that hang around Lanyon Valley.

Oops. I Meant LSD…..and LCD too I guess.

It was flying quite high over the Kambah area when I peered out the window to see where it was about 1am-ish. It did a few passes lasting about 10mins then disappeared..

It was nothing much, just a patrol from 8th RAR calling in helicopter gunships and a dust off, after being ambushed by a superior force of VC from D445 Battalion on the outskirts of Gordon at dusk.

Heard it 7 times over Lanyon, between 12:30 and 2am. Strange things is would always pass south over the east side of the valley and then north over the west side so it was hardly random.

Aliens…. Definitely Aliens, I mean if I was an Alien, I’d be in a helicopter, thats why they had the sniffer dogs out, maybe an alien landed….

Nothing to see here… Move along people, oiy you with the camera phone give that here! No you can’t go that way, I don’t care if you always go that way home, this is Canberra, there will be another way there!
