Saw two earlier this week, four just flew over.

Been here 10 years and only military flights I've seen have been special event flyovers and an occassional stop for gas or something at BNA.

Anybody know what gives?

Has a unit transferred into the area?

 I'm just outside of Nashville, on the west side, and I couldn't even guess how many times my windows have been rattled by military flights.

Five Chinooks in a staggered formation will get the windows rattling for a while.

East of town.  Lots of Blackhawks.

And the Vandy life flight on the weekends hauling the motorcycle wrecks to VUMC.

I saw military aircraft, including helicopters, regularly in East Nashville.

Just about all of Middle Tennessee is in the Ft. Campbell local flying area.

If OP saw a flight of 4 Apaches in the daylight, they were traveling to somewhere.  

Majority of Apache tactical training is done at night.  You wouldn't see them for the most part.

I have seen a few in recent months. Usually lots of Black Hawks passing over Nastyville

I'm in western part of Rutherford county and there's always a two-ship or more of Blackhawks flying over our area. Hell not that long ago I watched them doing landings in various fields (assuming they were practicing LZs and what not).  Occasionally we'll see a mixed flight of BH, Chinooks, and Apache's heading east, possibly to Arnold in Tullahoma.  

What I'm saying, it's very common, especially on drill weekends.

Y’all realize two of the biggest aviation units in the Army are a 20 min TOF north of Nashvegas?

We are smack in the middle of a low flying area and get gun runs from A10's time to time

I saw em headed to Smyrna over Nolensville.

The ones I saw were AH1Z’s.

ETA: I’ve also seen Ospreys on the way to Smyrna as well.

I assume there’s a Marine reserve unit there.
