Personally, I am very happy that my taxes are being used to pay for this type of search. A 'helicopter view' can be very useful in helping to target resources on the ground and I imagine is particularly useful in zeroing in on people in heavily wooded areas. I guess, though, as someone living under the search area mentioned, it would be nice for the Echo to not only report that a search is underway but that it has been completed successfully and/or there is no longer any cause for concern.
