Readers reported a half dozen or so military helicopters flying in the area on Tuesday. One person saw them fly around Big Spring Valley a good bit.

It was no special exercise going on, said Gary McILquham of Joe Starnes Field, the Guntersville Municipal Airport.

“We have military helicopters in the area every day transitioning from training exercises,” he said. “Sometimes, the are transitioning from a base out west somewhere to a base in Georgia. It was nothing out of the ordinary.”
