  • 2 Cobras and a Chinook over NYC May 28

    Two Cobras escorting a Chinook with the tail ramp down have flown over my house in the Bronx twice since 2pm and they are so low they set off car alarms.
    Does anybody know anything about this ?
    There are no military bases nearby and I have never seen or heard a helo flying that low in this area before.
    It is kind of spooky.
    They just made a third pass and it looks like they have weapons on the pylons but they are going really slow.


    Or
    I forgot what day it was and this is Memorial Day thing......

    FWIW, my office is located near MCAS Miramar so I frequently see F-18s, training jets, and Chinooks fly by overhead every day. I haven't noticed any increase in activity though. Maybe they're not planning any sort of air show this holiday.

      If they were Cobras escorting, then it was probably a CH-46, which is also what you see over the skies in San Diego. The Chinook is an Army helo, the SuperCobras and Sea Knights belong to the Marine Corps. I suppose it's possible that the Army and Marines were doing stuff together for Memorial Day, but I bet it was a CH-46 instead of a CH-47.

          Back when I lived in Jacksonville they would fly up and down the river next to my parents. So low I would wave and I could see them wave back.

            Oops, you're right, the ones I saw here are CH-46s.

              It must have been for Memorial Day because about 20min later an Osprey flew over really low.

                Another Marine Corps vehicle, which means it could still be for fleet week...

                  Yeah, I had an Osprey buzz over my house (Bergen County) at about 500ft, that thing makes an awesome noise.
