Don’t yet know what it is – except it’s not TV news, and not Guardian One. 7:23 PM NOTE: No conclusions reached (we tried calling Boeing Field and couldn’t get a live person on the phone) – but do note there’s a disaster drill involving state ferries tomorrow.


  1. Its been circling for a couple of hours,seems their filming or looking for something.

  3. It is too high up to tell easily but it does appear to have a nose cam, so aerial photography is a possibility. I just put this up because more than a few inquiries have come in.

  7. Plus a Coast Guard ship was hovering off Beach Drive, stopped briefly around 4000 block and threw an anchor out, dragged it back, then moved on.

  10. I had to run an errand at Boeing field. The same helicopter was sitting in front of Paul Allen’s hangar. It was a Eurocopter with a gyro stabilized camera on it’s nose like many news copters. I could not see any logos. It was positioned on a movable platform so it was at least planned to be there. Bing’s answer to the Google-Cam?
