  • Light aircraft circling late at night????

    Hi, I live in the outer northern parts of Melb Australia.
    I am very inquisitive about a light aircraft that seems really high in the night sky no lights and its been circling a radius of about 60kms (guessing here) for about 3hrs, and its driving me nuts.
    Does anyone know what on earth this aircraft would be doing this for, is it surveillance and why for so long?
    I thought it would have run out of petrol by now.
    There are no lighta and it gets closer to my home and then goes around in a very large radius circle again.

    If anyone knows why this is so can you please provide me with some explanation??
    Thank you..

    Regards
    Alrac72.

    Hi.

    Is it this Air Ambulance, possibly training or there is a big emergency in the area.

      No there was no emergency.

      O am thinking it may have been a surveillance plane looking for illegal activities as it circled a good 60km radius for about 4 hrs.

        Maybe looking for houses with marijuana plantations etc, not sure as this was suggested to me, as they can only do this at night with the heat sensors maybe????
