Did you hear the helicopters buzzing loud and low over Southborough on Monday night? Turns out it might have been part of a special forces training exercise.
Boston.com reports the military has been conducting training exercising involving helicopters in and around Boston.
The training is for the U.S. Special Operations Command, based in MacDill, Fla., which includes units such as the Army’s Green Berets and the Navy SEALs. The training began July 25 and will end Friday and is meant to challenge military personnel by exposing them to an area they are unfamiliar with – such as a city.
WHDH-TV has some video of the choppers flying over Boston.
My Southborough reader Deb said she heard “three low flyovers of loud aircraft” in Southborough between 10:00 and 11:20 on Monday night. I heard the same thing over my house.
Did you hear them? What did you think?
