If you see multiple helicopters flying low in the skies over Los Angeles today, don't panic. The LAFD has sent out an e-mail notice to explain: "A large contingent of military and public safety helicopters will be seen flying over Los Angeles today. More than three dozen aircraft, at times flying in low altitude formation, will be gathering for today`s American Heroes Air Show at the Hansen Dam Recreation Area in the northeast San Fernando Valley. We wish to emphasize: There is no local emergency associated with these aircraft, and no cause for alarm." If you want to check out the event, it's from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; admission is free.
