I love the first hand experience stories! I don't know how I would have reacted with news helocopters hovering over me; wow that's insane. I guess waving papers would not have done much for them!
When the first one turned up, we just kept shooting. But within a matter of 5 minutes, three more had joined him. We were shooting along a river bank within a 1/4 mile of a highway at around 17:00. I assume the first pilot was doing a traffic report, and must have noticed the flashes from my speedlite.
I'm sure there's some video of the event in a few private collections...
