Uh oh, now I'm the guy who liveblogged the Osama raid without knowing it.
Sohaib Athar @ReallyVirtual
I need to sleep, but Osama had to pick this day to die :-/

And now, a plane flying over Abbottabad...
Sohaib Athar @ReallyVirtual
and now I feel I must apologize to the pilot about the swatter tweets :-/

Two helicpoters, one down, could actually be the training accident scenario they're saying it was >> http://bit.ly/ioGE6O

Here's the location of the Abbottabad crash according to some people >>> http://on.fb.me/khjf34

@smedica It must have been more, I started noticing the helicpoter when the noise got irritating - which part of Abbottabd are you in?
Sohaib Athar @ReallyVirtual
@tahirakram very likely - but it was too noisy to be a spy craft, or, a very poor spy craft it was.
Sohaib Athar @ReallyVirtual
@smedica people are saying it was not a technical fault and it was shot down. I heard it CIRCLE 3-4 times above, sounded purposeful.
Sohaib Athar @ReallyVirtual
@kursed Well, there were at least two copters last night, I heard one but a friend heard two, for 15-20 minutes.
Sohaib Athar @ReallyVirtual
@wqs figures, if they have the right to shoot planes flying over the president house, the must have the same instructions for PMA
Sohaib Athar @ReallyVirtual
@kashaziz technically, it is unidentified until identified, and it is a flying object, so year, why the hell not, we have seen weirder stuff
Sohaib Athar @ReallyVirtual
Since taliban (probably) don't have helicpoters, and since they're saying it was not "ours", so must be a complicated situation #abbottabad
Sohaib Athar @ReallyVirtual
@raihak Funny, moving to Abbottabad was part of the 'being safe' strategy
Sohaib Athar @ReallyVirtual
@m0hcin all silent after the blast, but a friend heard it 6 km away too... the helicopter is gone too.
Sohaib Athar @ReallyVirtual
A huge window shaking bang here in Abbottabad Cantt. I hope its not the start of something nasty :-S
Sohaib Athar @ReallyVirtual
@m0hcin the few people online at this time of the night are saying one of the copters was not Pakistani...

@kursed Another rumor: two copters that followed the crashed one were foreign Cobras - and got away
Sohaib Athar @ReallyVirtual
The abbottabad helicopter/UFO was shot down near the Bilal Town area, and there's report of a flash. People saying it could be a drone.
Sohaib Athar @ReallyVirtual
Helicopter hovering above Abbottabad at 1AM (is a rare event).
Sohaib Athar @ReallyVirtual
Report from a sweeper: A family also died in the crash, and one of the helicopter riders got away and is now being searched for.
Sohaib Athar @ReallyVirtual
Go away helicopter - before I take out my giant swatter :-/
