I work for flight school in Northern New Jersey and had the privelege of seeing some of "America's Finest" at work this afternoon. At about 1:50 p.m., a six ship formation of AH-64Ds flew over our field at about 1,500 ft along with 2 UH-60 Black Hawks headed East ward. About an hour and thirty minutes later, 1 AH-64D and 1 UH-60 flew over again albeit in a westernly heading. Does anyone know where these guys are based out of?

1,500ft, man they were high, we had a 2 ship formation about 50' above the tree tops, they went just over our glider port. Luckly there were no operations occuring, or else we would be pissed such blatent disregard of safety.

There were more helicopters this morning although I was a sleep and can not verify what type of Army helos were flying over. The helicopters that flew over my field yesterday though, were in blatant disregard for our traffic pattern altitudes, but in the words of a pilot who was standing near by, "So is everyone else!" Anyway, keep on rocking fellas.

Thats nice in a powered airplane you can always go around, but with gliders, we are pretty much set on where we are going to land by the time we enter the downwind.
