That's when he started filming because "a huge helicopter, one that doesn't ever fly that low, one that never circles, it's just meant to go from point A to point B, was acting "strange". Ludmirsky said, "I didn't think it was in trouble. I just didn't understand what was going on.''
Along with the video he wrote on Twitter: "This pilot was performing a very aggressive circling maneuver . I observed 1 or 2 circles before filming & he was even lower & closer to my house, engine maxed."
He added that it was the only chopper that went over his house that morning.
Agency spokesman Keith Holloway told said, "We have received and [been] notified of a number of videos that are surfacing on the Internet and various other outlets. However, we are unable to verify any at this time."
