Seen through the AH-64 Apache’s TADS/PNVS (Target Acquisition Designation Sight/Pilot Night Vision Sensor) located on the nose of the helicopter, a flight of six of the attack choppers cruise around LA, buzzing the Hollywood sign for good measure.

The flight was clearly to capture some video of the Apaches operating over and around the City of Angels, but for exactly what remains unclear.

Ahh Reminds me of when the US Army and Navy SEALS were doing night ops practice in downtown Minneapolis. Blackhawks, Apaches, and little birds buzzing around downtown in the darkness last summer.

These guys weren’t messing around. Flying between buildings and dropping SEALS on the roof of the Federal Reserve. A lot of people were paranoid but I thought it was awesome.

They were flying so low that when a black hawk buzzed by on my late night run I made eye contact with the guy sitting on the door gun.
