DeKALB – A helicopter will fly over DeKalb and Sycamore today shooting aerial photographs and video for Northern Illinois University.

The helicopter will fly in concentric circles from about 4:30 to 6 p.m. to gather material NIU officials can use for promotional and media purposes, NIU spokesman Paul Palian said. The scenes on the ground will include the football game this afternoon against Akron at Huskie Stadium, which will kick off at 4 p.m.

“They are taking photographs and video of not only campus but the community,” Palian said.
