They did something like this in my town

just before the invasion of Iraq.

Helicopters were flying by the highway with no lights at all and a copter with lights trailed each one that was doing that only just a little higher.

Not much later at our apartment, there was way more movement. Flash grenades going off in the "woods", which were just a strip of trees so it was probably buildings where the action was.

Another pair of copters, one with no lights circled around the apartment like it was making a game of passing low through the complex, through a field, and toward the woods. Our balcony faced that field and I had an IR TV remote control in my hand and I wondered so hard what would happen if I flashed it at that dark copter. It was flying at my level and just across the street from me.
