Army helicopters fly over your house in Montpellier? Don’t panic, it’s an exercise. The Hérault prefecture explains that this operation, scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday, will “prepare for the possibility of joint attacks impacting several sites marked by high attendance or the existence of accessibility constraints”, like buildings.
The exercise will involve helicopter overflights this Wednesday near the Sud de France station and the Hôtel de ville, and Thursday near the Tour du Triangle and the Hôtel de Région. Note, an overview of the Sud de France Arena is planned for the evening, this Wednesday.
“The flights will be of fairly short duration in order to limit, for the population concerned, the noise pollution likely to be generated, indicates the prefecture. Only the overflight above the Arena, away from dwellings, will take place at night. »
