It flew right over my house in Goleta last night a few times. It sounded more like a military helicopter than a police helicopter.

Does the City of Santa Barbara own any helicopters? Would this be referencing a SB County Sheriff helicopter? Does the Sheriff have any smaller helicopters than the old Hueys used for firefighting/rescue, etc.? Just curious on what's out there.

There was also a MedStar landing at Cottage at 4:05 or 4:10 a.m., and another flight (maybe this and not a landing, but I thought it was medical) within an hour. At least I didn't hear the ocean one(s).

I saw the copter, two boats and three lights in the water in front of the yacht club at the west end of the breakwater. Tried calling the harbor patrol but they were out. Sure would like to know what all of the excitement was about!

SB city has no helos. SBCo. as of Dec. 2012 had 4 heavy lift Hueys and 2 smaller OH-58's. That's when they got the 2.3 mil overhauled copter 3 and said they would probably get rid of one of the others.

You don't know if paid or un-paid- you can 'hide' your status (grouchy tonite?)

@773: There is a "P" after the comment number for paid subscribers.

I heard the copter too, on the Mesa, and checked Edhat a few times to see if there was any news, but there wasn't I guess we'll never know.
