About that helicopter flying low around WRJ the past two Tuesday nights

FILE PHOTO: Scenes from a National Guard Black Hawk UH-60L during a “Boss Lift” helicopter tour on Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2016. The hour-and-a-half flight flew north through Franconia Notch and then over Lake Winnipesaukee before returning to Concord. (ELIZABETH FRANTZ / Concord Monitor)

I’m not the only one who noticed the helicopter — which seemed to be flying at relatively low altitudes while circling White River Junction after dark — on May 1.

(Just search for “Chopper??!!” in the Upper Valley VT/NH Facebook group or ask the folks who were at the Main Street Museum that evening if you want to know what I’m talking about.)

When it happened again last night, my curiosity got the better of me. That’s two Tuesday nights in a row!

So I called up Braxton Freeman, Midwest Air Traffic’s manager at the air traffic control tower in Lebanon, this afternoon to figure out what’s up.

Braxton did a little research and found that it was an Army National Guard UH-60 Black Hawk doing some touch-and-goes — i.e. training drills — from Lebanon airport’s Runway 25.

“They might have been doing some night vision training,” Braxton said.

He isn’t sure if this will continue for the next few Tuesday nights; the Army Guard basically shows up when the training is needed.

Thanks, Braxton!

 

It’s roadwork season in the Upper Valley

Crews work to replace a bridge carrying Route 4 over Kedron Brook in downtown Woodstock, Vt., on April 24, 2018. State transportation officials said on Friday that the bridge will be reopened ahead of the planned May 7 date, weather permitting. There is a local detour in place for passenger vehicles, but large trucks have a 40-mile detour while the bridge is closed during the $1.6 million project.
