Since  moving in I've noticed a small private plane passing overhead fairly 
low (I'd  say 100 feet or less) on a regular basis and landing nearby
I had the same unnerving experience out in KH6.  The local  pakalolo patrol 
(Operation Greenpeace,  government anti-marijuana  helicopter) made several 
flights around my 150 foot tower, hovering around 100  feet.  I thought for 
sure he was going to hit the guy wires.  To the  north of the tower was a 
huge tall grass area (not the pot kind) and I suppose  they thought it was a 
good place to grow pot.  They routinely flew at  heights of 100 feet above 
the terrain in the 600 foot gulch across the  street.  It was kinda weird to 
see a helicopter below my Yagi on the top of  the tower.
