Pay no attention to that airplane behind the curtain!

I thought this alert about mosquito spraying in Louisiana was rather... well... black-helicopterish. Sounds like some of the hyperbole from our local NIMBYs...

From: http://www.kathrynsreport.com/2011/09/louisiana-aerial-operations-iberia.html

Citizens will notice a low flying aircraft --- If the aircraft is overhead DO NOT look up to stare or attempt to follow the path of the aircraft. The aircraft is traveling quickly and will be out of the area in a brief period!

Was it a LiDAR mapping run?

No, supposedly just low-altitude skeeter spraying missions. They should have said, "if you look up, keep your mouth closed!" :shock:
