Military helicopters performed a Homeland Security training exercise on Tuesday night over downtown Boston’s skyline, flying literally between hi-rise buildings and just feet over North End building rooftops.
There appeared to be several Blackhawk helicopters in a flying pattern from Logan Airport in East Boston across the harbor past the North End and Downtown waterfront, ending up atop a skyscraper in the Financial District. It almost looked as if someone could rappel from the helicopter onto the roof of the 75 State Street building. The flying patterns were repetitive with some taking slightly different paths, closer to the Seaport while others are directly over the North End.
