Unidentified Flying Helicopter Hovers over Blue Lake

19 Jul

Friday morning, around 11:00 a.m., a helicopter hovered just above the treetops of Blue Lake, spending a considerable amount of time surveilling the neighborhood. Witnesses describe the helicopter as “orange and white, like a Coast Guard craft,” which “had its retractable landing gear up,” and “had a guy hanging out of it like he was taking photographs.”

Another Blue Lake resident offered that the aircraft was probably a forest-fighting helicopter on a practice run in accordance with prior Blue Lake flight plans.  Despite overall coldness and gloominess this past week, we are in a mighty drought.
