A Black Hawk helicopter from Clay National Guard Center near Marietta conducted an emergency landing near a Lilburn-area residential area Sunday, according to media reports.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, citing WSB-TV, reported that a warning light in the cockpit came on, causing the pilot to land the helicopter in the 4800 block of Five Forks Trickum Road. A second Black Hawk landed later to assist, and both helicopters returned to Clay.

No injuries were reported. A resident told the AJC, “coming home to a military helicopter across from the house is quite odd.”

Odd... I saw 1 hovering over the Dallas/Acworth area yesterday late afternoon. What's even odder is you usually don't see them on a Sunday.
