The examples given are certainly curious, but were they recent or 40 years ago? And all three are helicopters.
-- (U//FOUO) Employees of a coast shipping container retrofit company observed a helicopter that made eight passes over the property. A man wearing a harness stood on the skids and took photographs of the area.
-- (U//FOUO) A helicopter, flying at low altitude hovered over a dam, in violation of FAA regulations. Investigators determined that the registration number provided by the reporting party was not valid or on file with the FAA.
-- (U//FOUO) An employee of a chemical company reported that a helicopter hovered within 50 feet of a storage tank. Observers also spotted another helicopter nearby. Neither aircraft had tail numbers carried in the FAA Registry
