Two jets doing a daytime flyby, blackhawk helicopters around the perimeter, big cargo planes doing low flybys and one night just after dusk I saw a big Chinook do a couple laps around the man. It looked like the same kind of helicopter that the president flies in.
Anyone else see these? Not paranoid, just curious.
The President doesn't fly in a Chinook (which has twin rotors. HMX-1, "Marine One", only has one.)
But, Imagine If You Will: You're Joe National Guard Reserve on your two-weeks-a-year drill, flying over the same dry lakebed as usual, maybe never heard of Burning Man at all. Suddenly there's a giant weird-ass circular city with planes circling around and fire shooting up through the middle of it where there's supposed to be miles of white nothingness.
You've Just Flown Into...The Twilight Zone.
World's biggest Unidentified NonFlying Object. I'd love to have heard their intercom/cockpit chatter.
