It may not have been anything wild. It could have been the pilots keeping up on their hours.

From what I understand, there are a couple helicopters and the pilots must get in a certain amount of hours each month/year/mayan calendar unit. I've seen the CMPD pilots touch down at the Metrolina Expo, swap pilots, and get right back up. Supposedly, they used to fly to the Copal Grille on Wilkinson and land in the parking lot to go in and have lunch.
