Subject: [tenleytown] Excessive Numbers of Helicopters Today
(A neighbor asks...)
Does anyone know if there is something going on today? I feel like my house is being strafed.
I noticed a bill that was introduced for LA but not enacted: http://www.govtrack.us/
And another neighbor adds:
It would be good to get some input from our elected representatives of what we can do to stop this pollution in our neighborhood.
The helicopters are 'swooping' low to the ground. That makes the recent reports different from "normal" helicopter traffic.

The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) has been flying the radiation missions since Dec. 27, 2012 and they will continue until next Friday, Jan. 11. The flights have been conducted during daylight only, and the pilots fly about 80 miles per hour at 150 feet above the approximately 70-square mile radiation assessment area.
