June 6, 2017 at 9:38am the RCMP fly over Valley of the Sun in a helicopter

Then the RCMP flew over the mountain behind Valley of the Sun

February 21, 2017 at 12:58pm, did you see that low flying dive bombing RCMP aircraft fly over Valley of the Sun?  It was loud.  We went outside to see why it was dive bombing Valley of the Sun a few times like that, and we took these photos.

The RCMP plane was definitely dive bombing Valley of the Sun, as you can hear for yourself.

The digital camera that took these photos is only 10x optical zoom.

There were also 2 RCMP vehicles down Fintry Water Works driveway at 2:43pm

 

We know one RCMP SUV left Fintry about 4:40pm.  The RCMP had a long day out Westside if that plane was helping locate the stolen vehicle at 12:58pm

This copter sure flew low and close to property at Valley of the Sun, Kelowna, BC.  Wonder why they have to fly so close, eh?  Some helicopters can sure be loud ... a few vibrate the whole Valley at times as they fly over.

Click this link to see another photo of this same helicopter up closer.

October 6, 2011 at 1:00pm this cop-ter was out and about for at least 1/2 hour that we heard him frying around.  This cop-ter did 3 circles one after another around Valley of the Sun subdivision, then it flew over to Westshore Estates.

Helicopter flight paths rattle pictures on walls
Kelowna Capital News - November 18, 2010

To the editor:

In regards to Westside helicopters: Alpine and Wildcat.

Transport Canada has a flight path (weather permitting) for these machines—that is over the gravel pits through the mountain gap.

Alpine, especially, seems to have their own—over residential areas such as Westridge Estates, Peak Point and Rose Valley, all heavily populated.

One pilot actually flies so low the pictures on the wall vibrate.

On a phone call a while back to the above, basically they said they were there first.

Out of thousands of flights a year, one would think if there was a problem, it would be better to be out of a populated area.

After saying all this, we are very thankful for their expertise and dedication in the fire season.

D. Gooch, West Kelowna

These photos below were taken with a 10x optical zoom Panasonic Lumix model DMC-TZ5 digital camera at full zoom.

Don't know how we got this awesome photo of the full moon March 2010 taken at Valley of the Sun with this same camera and we can't seem to get a clear photo of a helicopter.  Must not know how to work the camera is all we can figure LOL.  Although this is the largest we can make this photo without blowing it up, this is probably the limitation of the 10x optical zoom of the camera.  this is the best photo of the full moon we have ever taken.
