Chopper Training

Walking into City Hall last night for a DLANC Arts Committee meeting I noticed a pair off helicoptors flying tight turns to the north. I was a few minutes early for the meeting, so I headed up to the observation deck.

Turns out the two were Army helicoptors practicing touch and go landings on two buildings just to the east of City Hall. I talked to a janitor who was up cleaning and he said they do this pretty frequently, and that's it's coolest when they're coming in at night.

The craziest move was when they would come in really low up Los Angeles (below building level) and then pull up to make it to the top of City Hall East.
