Residents in the San Fernando Valley will hear some rumbling in the skies Saturday afternoon.

According to the Los Angeles Fire Department, the helicopters are part of an air show. The department released a statement noting that the large group of aircraft would not signify an emergency and were "no cause for alarm":

"A large contingent of military and public safety helicopters will be seen flying over Los Angeles today. More than three dozen aircraft, at times flying in low altitude formation, will be gathering for today`s 'American Heroes Air Show' at the Hansen Dam Recreation Area in the northeast San Fernando Valley."

The event runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
