The BOQ on New River is directly in the flight path of the helos, and just down the road from the landing zone for the Ospreys. We can look out our window at the water and often see maneuvers of the different helocopters. Amelia LOVES them. She will squeal, run to the window, and yell, "Haycopcop!! MOMMA!! HAYCOPCOP!" She can't quite figure out how to say helicopter, but it's cuter the way she says it anyway. At night, we hear the rumble of the rotors as they fly overhead, coming in or going out on night maneuvers. It's a very peaceful sound and I love it. Sometimes they sound like they are purring as I drift off to sleep.
