Black HiF at night

Late last night, I heard a very low flying helicopter circling overhead. I guessed it was a police helicopter, searching for a fugitive. I can't confirm if that was the case, but it was using its searchlight from time to time. I thought it would be an interesting challenge to photograph a black Helicopter in Flight (HiF) at night with my RX10M3 (yes, I know an M4 would have focused better).

I took lots of shots, most of which were duds, but a couple sort of worked:

This is what the OOC JPEG looked like:

There was wispy cloud, which was reflecting some of the city lights

I believe this is what it looks like in daylight:
