Helicopters over Kaleen

By Deref - 4 January 2014 23

They’re not all black.

But for some time now the helicopters have been overflying Kaleen.

Should I be worried? Should I be alert but not alarmed?

What’s Your opinion?

My money is on aerial photos for Summernats.

Scouting locations for ‘Underbelly – The Canberra Connection’? (nothing against the fair Kaleen – just a general thought about some of the less than savoury things which seem to be going on around the town).

😀 If I wave at them when thy fly over, do you think there’s a chance I could get a part?

presumably NOT looking for people doing burnouts or speeding etc… No doubt they have a special “blind eye” for that.

By the way, I’m just stirring – I am not a SummerNats knocker – each unto their own.

Hmmm – plenty of possibilities there. Thanks. 🙂

If it’s a Robinson R44 (you can tell, they have a distinctive shape) then it seems to be doing work over EPIC during Summernats, and its rout is taking it out over Kaleen.

When was it rout-ed?

Not a big deal but..

the helicopters have been overflying Kaleen.

Flying over Kaleen? Or flying past beyond Kaleen (overflying)?

Ah, so it IS overflying, to get to EPIC. Thanks for the clarification.

Relax. It’s just the Federales using Infra Red sensors to look for grow houses. As long as you don’t have a huge hydroponic rig and 200 dope plants in your roof cavity you should be fine.

As long as they’re not after my raspberries!

they’re flying over me too in lyneham. there’s either a fugitive loose in north canberra they’re searching for or they’re monitoring summernats activity (civilian bogan burnouts).
