Noise from traffic helicopters awakens, angers some residents

Some residents near the Fix50 project are complaining about news helicopters once again waking them up this morning while hovering overhead near their homes.

"I feel like I am in 'Apocalypse Now,' " said Andrea Jackson, referring to the 1979 Vietnam war epic by director Francis Ford Coppola.

Jackson said she was awakened Tuesday and Wednesday at 5:30 a.m., and can see copters hovering overhead. "It's kind of creepy."

Police officials, who sent their own helicopter up, have asked the media to try to reduce the impact they might have on neighbors.
