    Can you see the helicopter above/over the palace?

    hello daer all,

    This is written in my Grammar Book:

    Above and over can both mean 'higher than'. Above is more common with this meaning.

    1. The water came up above/ver our knees.
    2. Can you see the helicopter above/over the palace?

    I can not understand the meaning of sentence #2 very well. Does it mean "Can you see the helicopter when you are on the roof of the palace?"

    thank you

    No. The helicopter is in the sky, above the palace.
