Mystery Chopper

By paperboy 3 April 2006 22

Can anyone shed some light on the helicopter that’s been in Canberra’s skies for the last few days.

It appears to be mostly white in colour, so it probably isn’t a defence chopper, and has been seen since late last week, generally in the North Canberra area.

Tonight, it was doing some ‘after dark’ work around Dickson.

After all the Canberra Times aerial shots in Sunday’s paper I thought the mystery had been sold, but it’s still buzzing around!!!!

What’s Your opinion?

Yes couldn’t help but notice the chopper. I assumed it was to do with traffic monitoring or aerial photography. The traffic thing makes sense as roadwork on Commonwealth Ave bridge had just started. I doubt it was related to Chinese Premier’s visit.
Also, the 21 gun salute at Parly House was a welcome for the Dutch Prime Minister, who had arrived that morning.
