Lot's of choppers flying around here lately. Much more than usual. Even my co-workers commented on this.
Noticed it too. Not military, but they still seem to be flying over the place where I work, which is supposed to be a no fly zone for all but police and military aircraft.

Oddly, just heard one fly over the house...

I work in Dallas county, but live further North.
The Hard Eight BBQ and Randy White's Hall of Fame BBQ are two of my favorite restaurants in North America! - I judge every city I go to on their food. Based on those two places, I like Dallas - A LOT!

Both my wife and I have commented to each other recently about how people are not "out and about" as much lately. Also, when you pass them on the street there is not the usual greeting or even an acknowledgment that you are there. It is like people are waiting for something bad, but they do not know what.

I can't say that I've noticed less folks out and about, but I do live in one of the fastest growing areas in the country. We were a nice small town when we moved here 16 or so years ago now we can't tell where one city limits ends and another begins.

Luckily, folks still wave and give a nod of the head in these parts for the most part, but ya can't help but feel the retreat to within for a lot of people.

Now that I think about it, I did notice alot of choppers a little over a month ago. We'd had several days here and there for a couple weeks where we'd hear two or three together fly over. But didn't put much thought into it. It caught my attention as different.

But, when we have low flying Military Aircraft sounding like they are going to crash land in your yard, you walk out and take a peek. Have had that several times last month as well.

We aren't on the usual flight route...

I live in an area that is under several busy airways (Jet routes) and it is routine to see the jets pulling contrails while overflying my area. Something I have noticed last few months is something strange with some of the contrails.
A normal contrail will be a jet on it's flightplan overflying and a normal course change might be a 5 or 10 degree turn to stay on the airway or cleared to the next fix by air traffic control. I have seen a marked increase in contrails overflying and seeing a 50 - 60 even 90+ degree turn then continuing on to wherever these planes are going. I think any BIG course change at that phase of the flight is military! I haven't looked through the binocs yet to see what type aircraft are making these big course changes but that is my next step. Something is up! Stay tuned!

I live pretty close to a national guard base and usually its just a ton of blackhawks flying around. Lately they have stopped and been replaced on fewer occasions by apaches. Never before have I seen apaches around here. They have a very distinct sound and I knew it when I heard them that it wasn't the typical black hawk. It looked as if they were both fully loaded also. No empty wings on these.
