[Ed. Note: “Do not be alarmed, citizens. These are just a few military attack helicopters flying over your Minneapolis neighborhoods this week. Go about your business…”]
Authorities say military aircraft will be conducting routine training over the Twin Cities through Saturday.
Minneapolis Police say the U.S. Special Operations Command training actually began last Sunday, but it was in locations not easily seen by or open to the public.
But police say the urban-environment training will become more visible as helicopters support the training this week. Residents may see or hear low-flying, military transport helicopters, specifically Black Hawks and smaller Hughes 500s, flying in the Minneapolis area between 7 p.m. and midnight.
