Helicopter in Barton

By ainsliebraddon - 16 November 2011 17

It is 11.30pm and there is a helicopter circling Barton. I assume it has something to do with the visit of Mr Obama. But what are they hoping to achieve at 11.30pm?!

Does anyone have any insight?

What’s Your opinion?

I can only assume that they are trying to keep the terrorists awake so they are too tired to commit any nefarious acts.

There was a helicopter flying over Kambah about 11pm last night, travelling towards barton, it seemed a bit high up to be southcare, who regularly fly over our house but much lower with about the same noise as last nights chopper.

It’s trying to catch rabbits.

Or giving the US journalists at the Press Club something to film, which I suspect is more likely.

There is a lot of action happening around the National Press Club in Barton this morning. A few coaches, a couple of mini-buses, some rental trucks and lots of men in business suits. Hmmm, me thinks they might be preparing for an important visitor.

I haven’t read anything about the Big O visiting the Press Club, but that doesn’t mean much……

The US media corp are setting up in the press club.

About the same as they expected to achieve at 5:30 this morning when they kept flying over the inner north. Apparently. I was asleep, but that’s what Mrs C told me.

They were looking for those who were online at 2330 hrs (that would be you, OP), it is obvious that lack of having someone to “snuggle up” with pushes people at this hour online, to be virtually aroused. LMAO

I’m going to say a number of things, ensuring that snipers aren’t setting up a nest any where, ensuring the security of the area that Mr Obama will be.

Are you that naive to think that bad people only do bad things during the day?
