Um, what's going on with the helicopter that's been circling over Ladera for the last half hour? Over by Covenant Hills and the school? Kind of creepy if you ask me. No spot lights or anything - just circling around... and still going...

Yea last night they (three helicopters) were circling around for hours right above Alicia and Pacific Park/Oso, and then all of a sudden the big spotlight came down they were shinning it in one spot for about 20 minutes at about 11:00 PM, I think it is linking to the story of the old woman who went missing in Aliso last week, who knows

I called the OC Sheriff who said the helicopter was assisting ground units and was circling in case of need. They also said that the suspects were detained. Now no more helicopter.

This helicopter problem has been going on for the last 6 years since I lived in Ladera.. Day or night …from what I see it has the markings of a police helicopter. It must be a police helo .?. But why circle 1000 times over a suburban area…. Why can’t they practice over San Juan or San Clemente..? Mama Mia… Give me a break!

I've lived here since 02' and haven't really noticed it as a problem until the past few months. Last month it was a supposed gunshot. Tonight I'm not sure what it was. It was a gold and green copter tonight and the sheriff confirmed there was a disturbance. Maybe the Register will shed more light in the morning.

We live in San Clemente and a helicopter is flying in circles above our area of the neighborhood.. It's dinner time, dog is barking... How do we find out why?
Do we dare call the Sheriff's Department?? Are we in any danger when this is going on?

You either don't live in a place where this is a problem meha, or you just cannot hear. The only reason I'm finding these comments is because I've heard the THIRD helicopter in an hour, and its after 2am!!!

Its not fear of the helicopter, its utter annoyance at it being so LOW, LOUD and FREQUENT. They use them for EVERYTHING now...and its a huge waste, not to mention an invasion of privacy to have this on top of my head (less than 200ft) DAILY.

Try to pay attention to what people are writing.
