Camp Parks Night Time Training? Around Town, posted by Stacey, a resident of the Amberwood/Wood Meadows neighborhood, on Apr 3, 2009 at 9:01 pm Stacey is a member (registered user) of PleasantonWeekly.com
It would have been nice if the surrounding communities were notified before nighttime training missions by three giant military helicopters flying roughly at the 1000 ft limit started. Or at least that's what it looked like that just buzzed over my house twice. Did this occur a few nights ago too?

Flight plans are typically made on a need-to-know basis, and if it is a military movement, such info is considered secret. The Department of Defense tends not to broadcast the exact location at any given time of its multi-million dollar assets. I wouldn't expect anything like a notice being given. If it was law enforcement advance notification would also be unlikely.

I live right by the mall and its been going on for a good 2 hours now. It's really loud! there is 1 every few minutes. I read that article and that would be really annoying if that is going on until 1am. I dont understand why they couldnt have started alittle earlier!!

OMG LOL I was so nervous because I had no idea what was going on. Its good to know that they are just training! I had my window open and I was freaking out because it is LOUD like really LOUD! They seem really close to the ground but I have been looking and I can't see the helicopters or whatever they are. One is flying right over or near my house, right at this moment, its loud!!!
