AH-64 Apache helicopter in my front yard – Jim Lee of ClimateViewer

For the record, I love our U.S. military servicemen and women. I was born on Vandenberg AFB where my father was a nuclear launch officer and my grandfather built the runway at Shaw AFB near my home in Sumter, South Carolina. The 3rd Army just moved in at Shaw and this helicopter was likely training at the bombing range in Manchester State Forest, which is behind my house. I was amazed at how steady the Apache was as it hovered 15 feet off the ground for over ten minutes; it might as well have been parked on pavement. I would hate to be on the receiving end of those 30mm shells or a Hellfire missile, and I am thankful that I never will. Now if I could only get the jets to stop buzzing my house below 500 feet as they pound the bombing range, three times a day, that would be nice. Thanks Trump! lol.
