I live in Bryan and our backyard has a general flight path for Easterwood. We frequently see the commercial planes flying over our backyard. Just now, we saw 3 military medical helicopters and a chinook flying low, looking like they were headed into Easterwood. Any idea why military helicopters would be coming into town?

Training flights. It's pretty common.

About a week or two past, I would see one flying to the east from south College Station. And conversely westwardly back to CS.

yes, there are USAR and TXARNG helo units all within a reasonable proximity that land here during training to refuel and might also take a trip over to Northgate for a burger and T-fries.... maybe.... just guessing

TTF-1 also often has Guard helos flying in support. Might be doing something from the deployment ISO Hanna

A couple of years ago I had a customer who flew Apaches. He would fly down and hover over my shop to see his car. Then he would land at Easterwood and show up a bit later in a loaner car to check out the progress on his car. He said he needed flight hours for training.....

There 3-4 routine flights from Rellis (Futures Army Command) to main campus / Easterwood daily. Several also to Austin and Ft. Hood.
Walk softly and carry a big stick! Make sure the big stick makes big boom noises and flashy bright lights.

Not your helicopters, but 6 Black Hawks flew over as I was mowing. I only got 5 out of the 6, though.

That group flew over our house while we were in the pool.

Did they circle back around for another look...

or increase speed?
