    Low Helicopters in Ames

    Anyone else in Ames see or hear the low flying helicopters a few minutes ago? We are just east of campus and there were at least two of them. Our guess was that it was related to the presidents visit on Tuesday but not sure.

    Re: Low Helicopters in Ames

    More than likely for the President. When he was in Cedar Rapids this spring, the Presidential Helicopters flew over my office a couple of times and that was about a week before he was in town.

    Re: Low Helicopters in Ames

    They looked like military helicopters, so rworkman83 is probably right.

    If they were black, it might be the DNR letting out mountain lions again.

    Re: Low Helicopters in Ames

    Yep I saw them too. My first thought is that it had something to do with the president coming too but I have no idea otherwise.

    Re: Low Helicopters in Ames

    Whose song is that remembered?
    At random, surpenting
    Throught fatty coils, emerging
    some other thought it's thinking
    this light
    stands above the
    houses
    on the ground
    this illumination
    visited upon the whole land

    unmarked helicopters
    hovering
    the lord is coming soon

    here comes the super copter
    here comes the noise it makes
    the demon was an idea
    the demon is awake
    scratch mark traced across the
    surface of your mind
    this hour, now upon us
    the hour, now arrived

    unmarked helicopters
    hovering
    the lord is coming soon
    unmarked helicopters
    hovering
    they said it was a weather balloon

    but i know the truth
    i know the whole shebang
    i know the names of men they had to hang
    i let her out the trunk
    heard what she said at them
    they've come to drag us through the double M

    it goes black black black black and blacker
    it goes black black black black and blacker
    it goes black black black black and blacker
    it goes black black black black and blacker

    unmarked helicopters
    hovering
    the lord is coming soon
    unmarked helicopters
    hovering
    they said it was a weather balloon
    it was a weather balloon
    it was a weather balloon
    it was a weather balloon
    it was a weather balloon
    it was a weather balloon

    Re: Low Helicopters in Ames

    It was two "Marine One's" (SAM XXX today) and two other escort helicopters.

    We were driving on University when they came in. They landed on the intramural fields across from the stadium. I would presume it was a practice run for Tuesday.
