• At a community meeting the other night the police said there are a lot of helicopters due to practicing for the inauguration. So maybe that?

    Hmm, that’s my building. Didn’t hear a thing. I don’t think there was anything going on in the street, so StubsDC’s account seems plausible.

      I heard it but didn’t see it. I’m facing the 16th and L side. Was wondering what was going on myself

  • Dupont East

    It’s a pretty common occurrence in the Dupont/Downtown area. Helicopters buzz the tops of the buildings all the time and often stop/hover or circle for 30 minutes or more.

    There was another one hovering at the Lincoln Memorial for a good amount of time right around lunchtime today.

    Saw this today from 15th and Independence SE.
    Looked to be military and it just hovered for 10 mins or so. Seemed odd!
