If you see military helicopters flying low over Minneapolis, dont be alarmed. Theyre just training in an urban environment.
The U.S. Special Operations Command will be conducting exercises until the beginning of September. This week theyre using helicopters, including Black Hawks.
Theyre not giving out their exact training locations because they dont want crowds to gather.
But you may get a glimpse of the helicopters flying low between 7 p.m. and midnight.
Need to try Chicago!...its prone to friendly fire!....*G*
...and it being the home of the Blackhawks and all . . .
Pretty cool to see and that sucker was really loud echoing off the buildings. Nothing like the news/medical helicopters you see flying around every day
Well this all sounds like training for Martial Law.
Alex Jones will have a field day.
Yup. I know where they are taking off from.. My evening job uses the air field and we got daboot to another one in the north metro so they could play with their toys.
Don’t bug me any, I wish they would use the Blaine air field anyways. Closer to my home and the location the media is headed anyways.
Win Win for me.
And they should train in the cities. That’s where the bad guys will be found.
“Citizens are being cautioned not to shoot at the Massive Alien Spaceship hovering over the city”.
Saw this happen in Houston in the 1990s (flew low overhead). They even crashed one on the edge of town that night (where it made the daily news).
Later have been repeatedly told I did not see what I saw.
So I guess they still aren’t doing such exercises. < /sarc >
