Helicopter Attempts To Land On Rockport Home, Police Looking For Pilot

By Christina Hager, WBZ-TV

ROCKPORT (CBS) – Strange activity in the skies over Rockport this weekend has investigators looking for a rogue chopper pilot.

One neighbor called 9-1-1, while another snapped photos of the helicopter attempting to land on the roof of a brand new home on the water.

WBZ-TV’s Christina Hager reports.

The house is owned by a Florida entrepreneur, but still appears to be under construction. Part of the roof is flat, but an F.A.A. spokesperson tells us there is no record of a legal helipad. A woman who came to the door Tuesday night simply shook her head and closed the door when WBZ asked her what happened.

It was Sunday afternoon when neighbors heard what they call a deafening sound and felt an extreme draft. They say the helicopter hovered over the roof for about 15 minutes, and appeared to briefly touch it before taking off. Rockport Police are also trying to find out who the pilot was.

    My daughter and I saw what appears to be the same helicopter trying to land on Woodbridge Island here on Plum Island We just thought that someone was taking flying lessons as the Plum Island airport is right around the corner We both thought it was odd though as no one has ever attempted to land there…

    within 5 minutes I just found out who owns this chopper, their phone number home address and private helipad in a different town in NH. Pretty sure contacting this person would tell you either HE was flying or rented his chopper to someone else. Take the extra time and finish the story.

    Wow. You people surely don’t have much to do. Look at what is called the Federal Aviation Regulations. Not breaking any FAA rules. Doesn’t look like it was flying over any other houses other than the one (probably with permission). You did not feel a ‘draft’, you are obviously lying to make your point. As for the person who ‘doesn’t want to be identified’, why not? Beef with the owner? Couldn’t you just talk to them in person? Hiding behind the police and the media to get back at someone is all this is. Luckily you hit a slow news day. Forgotten tomorrow.
