There is nothing cosmic, paranormal, or ethereal about black helicopters.
They belong to the U.S. military, 160th Special Operations Aviation
Regiment, based in Ft. Cambell, Kentucky, in Hopkinsville, KY. They park
many of the helicopters at different locations where they are used, however.
The only reason the color black is significant is that only this one
military unit gets this particular type of paint for its helicopters, the
160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment ("160th SOAR") in Ft. Campbell,
The paint is called "CARC" and it is used because it is chemically resistant
and non-radar reflective.
Other military units do get this paint for use on airplanes and other craft,
except helicopters, however. If you look at military webpages of aircraft,
you will find plenty of pictures.
The 160th SOAR is a military special operations unit that began as an
intentionally covert, illicit and illegal arm of what was formerly called
"Delta Force," which was a branch of 5th Group, Special Forces, and a
"reserve" branch called 12th Group, the way special forces was FORMERLY set
up. It was operated and funded through CIA and this alliance continues to
Many former members also are now prominent in the media, which is why it has
been a relatively simple matter for them to run the stories calling people
exposing the activity of the 160th "loonies" or claiming the helicopters are
associated with "UFO" activity, etc., in efforts to keep the public ignorant
of the true military source and illegal purposes of these craft and their
pilots and unit members. Robert K. Brown, of Soldier of Fortune Magazine,
and his patsy, James Pate, are two examples. Joe Gelarden of the
Indianapolis Star-News (the same company also owns the Arizona Republic) is
another. Governor O'Bannon's press secretary is another. U.S.
Congressional Representative Dan Burton's Chief of Staff is another
(straight out of the 160th before he worked for Burton). These are just a
few examples out of dozens.
Placing members in such prominent locations, it is quite simple to undermine
Congressional investigations and place stories prominently in the media
discrediting any "leaks" of truthful information.
In recent years, the military created two separate branches from what was
formerly the legitimate "special forces" and this covert band of
CIA-sponsored thugs operating under the cover of being "special forces."
(You may remember "Operation Phoenix" and "Air America" as two examples of
the CIA sponsored illegal activity of the illicit group).
Now, there is a separate military branch, known as special forces, and
another, known as special operations.
Special Forces branch consists of the traditional "green berets," and
"airborne" branch of the Army with a fairly long, special infantry, history.
Special operations is the bastard step child and brainchild of a bunch of
former covert thugs and rogues of the self-styled "Delta force," that has
gained "legitimacy" (through lobbying and funding) and is now its own
separate branch of the military, headed in the pentagon by a Col. (probably
a general by now) Sheldon. Immediately prior to his appointment to head
special ops at the pentagon, he was the commander of the 160th Special
Operations Aviation Regiment. (See above. The 160th is the unit which has
the black helicopters.)
These helicopters flew missions to decimate Panama, under the leadership of
(now) "drug czar" MG McCaffrey. We show this same unit, the supposed
"heros" returning from Somalia (broadcast on NBC and named by name) in a
video that shows what they really did in Somalia -- firing down on crowds of
civilians as a "diversion" while paratroopers were dropped into the area.
THAT, in fact, is how they train, to "create diversions" (by firing on any
live target below) while they drop in members of their unit by parachute
from the helicopters. They do this training in the U.S., over U.S. cities,
frequently now, and they are training police in many of the same "special
If you are seriously interested in black helicopters, go to Ft. Campbell,
Kentucky, which is located near Hopkinsville, KY.
There is what is called the "Pratt Museum," open to the public, but somewhat
obscure, there. At the Pratt Museum, they have a training tape from the
160th playing continuously, made by the Army, where you can see black
helicopters and the 160th in training missions. It's quite impressive.
They have an entire section on the 160th Special Operations Aviation
Regiment there, with memorabilia from many of their missions, such as to
Panama, Somalia, etc. Lots and lots of scenes of nothing but black
helicopters, since that is all they have.
Then, if you can (they may not let you since I filmed them, they tightened
security a lot), drive over to the airfield.
The 160th has a separate hangar there. They park a lot of dark green
helicopters outside, usually, so they can make the claim they don't "really"
have any black ones, "see, they're dark green?" But hang around long enough
and you'll see black helicopters and black C-5A's among other things.
Likewise, they park a lot of these helicopters at other miltiary locations
throughout the country, always among dark green ones. Anyone asking about
them is shown the dark green ones with the bogus, "See, they're dark green"
It is usually simple, however, to film a dark green one parked directly
adjacent to a black one and point out the differences.
At Ft. Campbell, the 160th also has a MOUT training area there (Military
Operations on Urbanized Terrain) which is a mock up of a city.
They also train soldiers to jump out of the helicopters there, often using
the black helicopters, which is also one of the simplest ways to see them.
Just sit around and wait. They fly over. Some of those used in training
are marked, whereas the ones used in clandestine operations are not marked
and any you find parked at military installations will not be marked.
I've noticed, of late, on some of the ones in our local area, that they have
taken to putting big "red cross" emblems on some, apparently to give the
impression they are rescue, however, I would seriously doubt that.
If you see a black "little bird," that is the simplest proof it is from the
160th. Go to DOD's webpage (do an altavista search for "little bird" and
you will find DOD itself asserts that ONLY the 160th SOAR flies this
However, the 160th has a number of different types of helicopters, not just
the little bird.
The 160th's unit patch is death on horseback, their motto is "Death Waits in
the Dark." We have so thoroughly exposed them and what they do, that the
Army Times did a PR piece on them, trying to portray them as "just folks,"
about a year and a half ago and ran what was, until that time, a picture of
their "secret" patch (I had tried to buy the patch several times and through
various sources and they did, indeed, up until the Army Times ran the story,
try to keep the patch a secret).
Prior to the passage of the 1995 Omni-Bus Crime Control Bill ("1995 Crime
Bill"), these helicopters and their special ops pilots, were used as a taxi
service and private mafia by the FBI and DOE, with funding funneled through
the Washington, D.C. government office "Organized Crime and Drug Control
Task Force" ("OCDTF"), called the "Organized Crime Task Force," "Task
Force," or "Racketeering Task Force," and "Drug Task Force," to be
intentionally confusing and hard to find their phone number.
However, it is headed by Paul (may not be the right first name, my memory
isn't what it used to be) Coffey (that's the right last name). Call D.C.
information, ask for the "Organized Crime Task Force" number and call him.
Any federal agency could request funds for a "Drug Task Force" through OCDTF
and get the funds, and merely claim it was for use to create a "drug task
force." They did not have to account for how the funds were spent to anyone
anywhere and they could use the funds to create a "task force" out of any
government agency assets, including military, such as the 160th. As a
result, multiple federal agency operatives created their own private
"mafias" that were supposedly "drug task forces," but in actuality, have
been involved in drug running, extortion and blackmail.
When the 1995 Crime Bill passed, these same people had requested (under the
guise of "fighting crime") multiple and vast authorities to create "drug
task forces," with federal funding, from any government agency asset, and
They now operate far more blatantly than in the past, unfettered by any
appearance of illegality, though what they are doing is not, in fact, at all
The 160th now routinely participates, along with other military units, in
training police and practicing "urban assaults" over U.S. cities, which has
been widely reported in the media at this point.
Thus, for you to want to put this in anything associated with "conspiracy,
cosmic whatever, and paranormal," is nothing more than the usual effort to
ensationalize and discredit the truth, by associating what amounts to a
military takeover in this country, through a combination of drug running,
gun running, lobbying, blackmailing congressmen, and terrorism, with the
usual pablum of "it's a conspiracy."
Well, bucko, it *is* a "conspiracy" and a whole lot of these murderers need
to be put on trial for exactly that, conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy
to commit treason, conspiracy to distribute drugs, conspiracy to commit
extortion, and a laundry list of other charges.
I'd personally appreciate it if you would go back to your handlers and tell
them to kiss my ass.
