State Police say the three people arrived at the airport on a private plane Monday and were preparing to leave on Tuesday. Police say the individuals approached a Connecticut National Guard Blackhawk helicopter in an area not cordoned off from private aircraft.
Lt. J. Paul Vance, spokesman for the State Police, says the three were just being curious. He says no laws were broken.
The helicopter is under constant surveillance by the Army National Guard and officials said it was not at risk.
