Aha! Welcome to Episode No. 2,512 of LoCO Looks Up, the Outpost’s regular review of what is soaring menacingly through Humboldt airspace on any given day. In today’s episode, prompted by reader inquiries, we ponder why three helicopters exist. Observe one of the helicopters now!
Why? Well, LoCO turned where we always do when we want to know what’s that, up there: Emily Jacobs, program director with the Humboldt County Aviation Division! According to Jacobs, these three Chinook helicopters belong to the U.S. (phew!) Army and are just stopping by the California Redwood Coast - Humboldt County Airport for fuel.
If you believe that story, then we should all be fine!
