More Choppers Heading South
A brace of helicopters flew out of the Arcata airport about 4 p.m. Residents of the North Coast have been reporting sightings of the handsome duo heading south since that point. These photos were taken by Oliver Cory in the Eureka area.
The copters are believed to be Chinooks and part of military maneuvers that have been crossing the the area lately. (See here for earlier reports.)
UPDATE 7:18 p.m.: Here is a photo provided by a reader of the choppers getting refueled at the Arcata Airport earlier today.
