Anyone know the scoop on the helicopter flights lately? Saw a private copter around the last couple weeks, and last night I heard copter flights for at least an hour at 1am in the morning. I did see a snorkler had gone missing, so maybe search flights, but can't imagine what they would find in the dark at 1am, though there was a bit of moonlight last night.

Just curious if anyone knew.

is this on AC, if it is then sometimes the Brithish Royal Navy will fly there "state of the art" helicopter around the island looking for drugs and other things. When my family and i were staying at the house of the Escelante family a couple years ago they flew over us about fifty feet in the air, and stoped right out in front of the house for about five minutes ( it was very unusal). This could be what you are referring to.I have seen them fly around late at night also.
