Wow...Scary scary...Jets flying over the city.

Blue angels i think,
but they are flying so low, rattling windows, deafening...totally scary.
I can't imagine them dropping bombs like in some countries.
could you relate to a life of such?

    No, I couldn't.  


    A couple of years ago I was sitting in front of a building on the step when I heard this roaring overhead and coming from behind the building.  Four military jets flew over just barely over the roofline...scared the hell outta me.

    I'd never seen military jets where that happened before...kinda outta the way, and it was where I grew up and lived for several years afterwards. 

    The year I lived near the ANGB it didn't bother me, but I was only a few miles away, there, so it was a common occurrence. This post was edited by Bozette at October 6, 2016 5:24 PM MDT

    That's a red-flag, huh? I'd never seen a black helicopter until I moved here. For something that doesn't exist, there sure are a lot of them ;)

    Have had them here as well.  They did some unannounced training down and around town here just prior to Jade Helm.  The state police started maybe 8-10 months ago.

    I think creepy would have been what I would have felt if I'd been downtown that night.  Lots of people out on the town and dark helicopters without lights swoop in by the buildings...no thanks.

    They visited here about a month ago and flew right over my house to set up a new maneuver. It was awesome The were at about 1000 feet. The sound was incredible...the sound of freedom.

    We get quite a few low-flying helicopters around these parts, enough to startle all the pets. But not, nothing compares to countries that have to watch over their shoulders (moreover, their kids') for drones.

    We have the state police helicopters out here every weekend now, which sucks, but I could not even imagine having to worry about drones.

    It's always the kids that get the worst of it too. Instead of running away, they run toward it!

    I live in an area where they come to practice maneuvers in the winter. I have to remind myself not to be amused by the performances and aerial acrobatics. They are practicing for war, and I look to the day when the nation's will no longer engage in such a horrible practice. (Isaiah 2:4)
