Military Choppers Chicago
eyewitness | 07/22/2013 | self

Posted on 07/22/2013 9:09:25 PM PDT by pierrem15

Three military helicopters moving like bats out of hell west out of Chicago 500 ft altitude, only 1 with running lights.

Never seen anything like that before.

Maybe a Drone got out of control and they were trying to catch it.

Probably Obama sneaking in town for a long over due and desired night of bliss at the public baths.

If he’s wearing that shimmer eye shadow at his next presser, you know he’s been “home” recently.

Is there a training base close by? We see that around here at times if we travel to a certain area of town or if they fly off course from a flight pattern.

From the posted article: On July 23 and July 24, the military will hold exercises from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m., which will involve the use of helicopters, Carr said.

Similar training exercises were done elsewhere including Miami but the specifics were not released.

I found this article which may answer some questions:

I heard it was an emergency food run for those who Serve and Protect. It landed on the roof of Oak Park Hospital, where 4 black SUVs were standing by. One went to Oak Park Bakery for a half-dozen bismarks, one went to Goldie’s for a burger (and to hear My Girl on the jukebox), one went to get a slab of ribs at Robinson’s, and one went to Petersen’s to get a quart of double chocolate.
