LMAO!!!!!! cmon need to hire people who don't have their heads up their backside. This story should have never been posted in its original form. SO now you are forced to edit the report, to fix your mistake, and its sounds even worse. NOW, you are reporting on an event that already happened! LOL Cmon guys. If it wasn't so funny, it would be sad. Quit relying on brain-dead 20-somethings for your crack reporting. Let me know if you decide to hire some real potential.


Well, it sounds like they are doing it Tuesday as well. Gonna bring the wife and kid down and sit in the parking lot across the street. my 2 year old LOVES helicopters!


Ummm ... it was MONDAY night when they practiced.


Just another way of the government showing you who is in control and what you would be up against in the event you wake up and decide to rebel.


[blink]Practice? Practice what?


It's all fun and games until one of these helicopters plunges into a crowd of civilians then everyone will be screaming about why these games were ever allowed... #warmongers


What do you want to bet there will be 10,000 or more calls screaming about alien spacecraft, flying saucers, claims of abductions and on and on?


Why don't they practice over Scottsdale?
