I was notified by a reader who lives in the Ewing Park area that very frequently multiple helicopters are flying over his house after dark, sometimes using search lights. The reader had asked the Bloomington police, they didn’t know who was flying.
The National Guard out of Peoria does training from CIRA, I frequently see them during the day over my house. I’ve never heard them flying at night however.
I sent a FOIA to CIRA since I thought they might know who is using the air space. I still don’t know any more than I did before from their response. Have you seen them?
I asked the Peoria National Guard, if they respond I will update this story.
