Helicopters? What are they looking for?

Have heard a couple tonight.

They have been doing large circular movements over and over all night in the Parklands - to- Burwood area over several hours and on 2 occasions they were hovering at almost standstill almost directly over our house inching very slowly across for about 10 minutes. It's weird, especially so late at night.

Heard a helicopter go over a few hours ago, and it wasn't the rescue helicopter like it normally is, then about 15 min later another one went over, and it did sound like the same one, but both were going in same direction. But we are out near west melton. Maybe they are doing some sort of mapping of fault lines with some form of radar, probably at night because fewer air traffic? Just a guess

i heard it as well and was told by someone on the republic page that they were trying to locate the person/person who used a lazer at a helicopter or something like that. I will try and copy the page if i can.
hopefully link will work :)

I just went back on the group and they said they rung the police and the police didn't have a clue what was going on, no one was missing.And 1 person even wrote in to chris lynch and he didn't know anything and was going to look into it. but all a interesting night lol.
