Low flying Helicopter this morning
« on: October 14, 2018, 12:34:04 PM »
Itís been quite a while since Iíve been woken by a low flying helicopter, but twice this morning at approx 4am and then again at 6am. Couldnít make out exactly what it was two bright lights on the underside, assuming was a coast guard? Didnít show up on any of the flight tracking.  Wondering does anyone know what it was? Iím in Dromore, Tyrone.

At that time of the morning I would assume it`s likely the Police or possibly one of the Heli-meds EC-135`s on a call.

wouldn't be the HeliMed, they only fly 0700 - 1900 local, earlier calls get a road response.
