    Did anyone else just see this? It passed N.C. San Antonio about 5 minutes ago. I know the sound anywhere and ran outside to see. Sure enough, 2, 3 chopper formations flying low heading North, North East. (Towards New Braunfels)

    I worked at an airport one summer fueling planes as a teen, job called a "line man" but I also ran FBO at times.

    We had an above ground jet fuel tank. At the time Blackhawks were newish.

    Heard a copter coming in and went out to meet it. Darn thing looked like it was landing on the jet fuel tank. So I took off running away.

    The blackhawk landed and the rotor blade wasn't two feet away from the tank. The whole crew of 12 laughing at the startle they gave me.
