Yes it flew directly over us from Bradfield area we saw it land too, at first I thought it was connected to the incident on the Parkway, but it landed to close to us for that.

Was a huge machine, either military or medical at my guess.

How many rotors did it have?

 

If it came from the west and was military, could it have been a Chinook from Whaley Bridge?

Same one again, probably reads SF and now doing it on purpose.

 

Joking aside hope its mission is successful or false alarm.
