Military choppers only an exercise: AVP

Some 70 military helicopters will fly through Northeast Pennsylvania this weekend and early next week.

That’s according to a public advisory Friday from the Wilkes-Barre Scranton International Airport (AVP).

The choppers will depart from Rome, New York and continue on to Philadelphia throughout Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Exact flight times are not currently known.

AVP says the flights are only an exercise and there’s no cause for alarm.
