    People spotted the helicopters from street corners and downtown high-rise windows. Swooping low and darting between buildings, the choppers rattled houses and swiveled the heads of fans watching the Twins play at Target Field.

    All across St. Paul and Minneapolis on Monday night, curious and sometimes frightened residents asked the same question: What the heck was that?

    Turns out it was a repeat visit from the Night Stalkers, an Army regiment based at Fort Campbell, Ky., that specializes in night missions using the famed — and famously loud — MH-60 Blackhawk helicopters.

    They need to relax and enjoy the free airshow!
    We had an Osprey go over one evening. My initial thought was aliens. LOL Those are cool looking!

    Training? Nope. They were looking for Poncho.

    I live in Virginia Beach and have grown up listening to F-14's and F-18's flying overhead my entire life. I love going to sleep with that comforting sound at night. A nice steady hum. Perfect white noise for sleeping.
