All day long, reports came pouring into Boston Helicopter Central, OK, our Twitter feed, about helicopters overhead: There were helicopters over Boston Harbor for the USS Constitution turnaround, helicopters over I-93 for the procession for Sgt. Johanny Rosario Pichardo to Lawrence.
And then there was the helicopter that just stayed in place, for hours, over Cambridge.
Robert Winters, one of the first to report it, updated at 10:55 p.m.:
The helicopter is still hovering over Kendall. It has to be like three hours now.
Cambridge Police responded to one person who asked what the deal was:
We were notified of helicopter activity associated with aerial photography. It is not related to any known criminal activity.
David de Swaan Arons, though, has had enough:
Helicopters doing aerial photography and still going at 11:10pm in a residential neighborhood? When will this stop?
