    I just heard some an hour or so ago. I work over in the 3M/Sauer area and it was shaking our roof. Sometimes trains do that but there wasn't one.

    Re: Helicopters?

    I saw some yesterday leaving Ames at about 5:30pm heading west towards Boone. They are pretty sweet machines those Blackhawks. I think they cost a couple million a pop.

    My dog was completely baffled at the sound. We were playing frisbee and he looked up and said, "That doesn't sound like geese.".

    Re: Helicopters?

    Speaking of helicopters...I was reading something about the Marine One presidential helicopter. They are in talks with Lockheed to replenish the entire fleet (28 total) for approximately $400M per chopper. Unbelieveable if they do this in this day and age. They gave Citi grief about a private jet order they made 3 years ago and never took possession this year.

    Re: Helicopters?

    Kind of on/off topic but has anyone ever taken a helicopter lesson from John Mac over in Ankeny? I have been thinking of doing either this or flying lessons for a while...
