Looking for some info on a unique whirly bird I saw today
So, I thought maybe you guys would know what was up with this heli.
I saw a low-flying heli today cruising roughly 45knots pretty much right over I-95 down here in South Florida.
It seemed like a standard helicopter, bigger than an R44, similar to what you would see a news crew flying.
What made it unique, asides from the low flight and speed and being right over I-95 was that it had 2 "outriggers" or pylons on it made of tubular pipe, and at the end of each of these was a white disc-shaped object. I would say the discs were roughly 18 to 24 inches in diameter and maybe 4 inches thick.
At first I thought it was a high-tension power line ship, but I don't think the outriggers were beefy enough to support a person.
Was this some kind of radio reconnaissance bird?
Thanks everyone, i hope my poor description will help!
