The mystery of the so-called “black helicopters” has been discussed for many years and is related to UFOs, cattle mutilations and other unexplained phenomena.
However, since 1993, the observation of black helicopters in the sky over the United States has become a common occurrence. Sometimes they accompany triangular UFOs in dark color, other times they appear alone. These sites are named because of their resemblance to military helicopters.
They are black in color and do not carry identification marks on the board. Eyewitnesses often notice them when flying just above the tops of trees, in sparsely populated areas of the United States. Their flight speed does not exceed 160 kilometers per hour. The helicopter cab windows are black and it is impossible to see what is going on behind them.
Most commonly, black helicopters are observed over Napa County, California, and mainly during the night. The media is in no hurry to report unusual UFOs as they consider the latter to be military targets.
Napa News correspondent Matthias became interested in the phenomenon and decided to conduct his own investigation. Local Air Force Command rejects any connection to the black helicopters.
Grisi talked to many witnesses. Here is the story of one of them, a resident of Napa – Henry Richardson:
“One night I couldn’t sleep and went out to get some fresh air. Bright stars shone with a steady light. Suddenly, in the northeastern sky, the stars disappeared as if the clouds had covered them. I noticed a dark spot moving across the sky toward Napa.
In a few minutes I saw a huge triangular object on a lighter background, and there was a helicopter next to every corner of the triangle. In the silence of a summer night, the characteristic sound of the propellers was heard. Both the triangle and the helicopters were completely black. “
After interviewing hundreds of witnesses, the correspondent understands that objects appearing in the sky above Napa County differ in design and appearance.
Most often, witnesses saw flying objects similar to the UH-1 military helicopter used by US troops in Vietnam.
During the flight of this helicopter, which the soldiers call the “working horse” during the war, a distinctive sound is heard. Therefore, the presence of the helicopter could be detected even before the machine itself appeared in the field of view. Obviously, objects of this type were seen by Richardson.
Grisi calls the second type of black helicopters “Cobra” because of its resemblance to the military helicopter AH-1 Cobra. These objects make similar sound, but far outnumber UH-1. Witnesses who saw the Cobras up front claim that, from that angle, the machines are almost indistinguishable in the dark sky.
In the AH-1 Cobra, this effect is caused by a design characteristic. The pilot in it is above and behind the officer in charge of the armament, much like the Coast Guard.
The latter has a high range of flight and reliability. It can even land on the roof of a car. This type of helicopter is used for travel by the US President. Grisi only managed to find two witnesses.
On March 22, 1998, in an area near Groom Lake , eyewitnesses managed to capture a strange object.
Another type, called the “Banana” because of its resemblance to the military helicopter CH-47, cannot be confused with the Cobra. It really looks like a banana. The CH-47 is designed to carry heavy loads and is able to carry many people and equipment on board. The “black” version of the helicopter has been seen more than once.
In 1996, on Lake Michigan ( Lake Michigan ), north of Chicago, a “Banana” landed together with a group of people in black uniforms.
The case was reported to the local sheriff, but when he arrived, the black helicopter with the passengers had already flown away. The purpose of the landing remains unclear.
‘Bananas’ without identification marks have been repeatedly observed over Oklahoma ( Oklahoma ), which appear in groups or accompanied by a “cobra”. One of the witnesses manages to shoot “Black Bananas” with an amateur camcorder. Military experts, to whom Grisi shows the video, say the objects are very similar to the CH-47 helicopters.
Another type, codenamed Hybrid, is the intersection between helicopter and aircraft. The fins are positioned at the top in the same way as in a conventional helicopter, and the similarity to the aircraft is the wings.
The hybrids appeared in Illinois, accompanying triangular UFOs, which, several years ago, were often seen in the sky. In a number of cases, witnesses report cargo carried by Hybrids over long ropes.
One of the eyewitnesses to the appearance of a group of black hybrid helicopters on November 20, 1997 – Olaf Krouz, assured Grisi that he saw a large inscription on their wings that read “American Warbirds.”
After a lengthy investigation, the persistent correspondent found that there was no registered company of the same name in Illinois, as in all other states. The objects, named by Grisi – Hercules, are similar to S-130 Hercules military helicopters.
Both are characterized by very low and slow flight, as well as high load capacity. “Hercules” is most commonly seen in North Ohio, where they appear individually, sometimes in groups and sometimes accompanied by triangular UFOs.
Grisi has published a series of articles and radio coverage on the subject of black helicopters. He has found more than a hundred witnesses to their appearance in California and other states.
In all cases, with the exception of the above, the sites did not have any identification marks, which generally calls into question Olaf Krouz’s story.
The correspondent contacts military experts who are unanimous in the fact that all types of black helicopters, with the exception of the Hybrids, are very similar to military helicopters in the Air Force. However, the BBC’s press service claims that the black helicopters have nothing to do with them.
Eyewitnesses happened to see perched black helicopters, with people wearing black clothes holding objects very similar to automatic weapons.
According to several Massachusetts families, in March 1997, black helicopters flew daily. At the same time, they did not have any identification signs.
They flew at a low altitude, just a few meters above the ground. In other cases, witnesses, including several police officers, attempted to approach the sites, but they immediately took off. No incidents of aggressive behavior by black helicopters or their passengers have been reported.
Introducing an excerpt from the story of cop Matthew Hughes, a New Mexico cop during an interview with Mathias Grisi:
“On December 24, 1996, in the course of my line of duty, I received an order from a radio station to go to one of the nearby farms where, according to the owner, criminals were flown by helicopter. I thought it was nonsense, but I had to obey the order.
Since, at the time of the announcement, my car was not far from the farm, I arrived at the scene within ten minutes. It was late evening. At the far end of the farm, near the outbuildings, there was a small apparatus, much like a helicopter.
As far as one could tell in the dark, the helicopter was completely black. I didn’t see the owner of the farm. I got out of the patrol car and approached an unfamiliar machine.
At that moment, I heard a distinctive hissing sound, the propeller blades began to move, and the helicopter flew. There were no traces left. At the house, the farm owner met me with a rifle in his hands. The rest of the family had disappeared into the basement.
The farmer said the black helicopter landed about an hour ago. Two men in black came out of it with automatic weapons in their hands. According to the owner, unknown people entered the barn, which serves as a fertilizer store.
He began shouting at strangers to get away from his property, but he dared not come near. The strangers did not answer him or pay any attention to him. Then he called the police. “
Hughes writes a Farm Incident Report but does not know if an investigation was conducted.
The Grisi’s study includes black helicopters in Colorado, Texas, Tennessee, Michigan, Nebraska, Wyoming, Montana, Ohio, South Dakota, Minnesota, Massachusetts, New Mexico, Illinois and California.
Articles about these UFOs have been published in some media, in particular in the Los Angeles Times, Kilgore News, Denver Post, but the information they contain is extremely scarce. Observations of black helicopters were recorded from October to May, with maximum activity falling in December and March. According to Grisi, most often objects appear in Colorado, followed by Texas.
In the course of his investigation, the journalist met with Texas amateur ufologist Thomas Adams, who recorded dozens of sightings of black helicopters in various states. Analyzing the information gathered, Grisi concludes that there are underground bases for servicing these flying machines. As the facts show, such bases are located in Texas and Colorado, and probably in other states.
In the US, there are underground bases for both military equipment and humans. Matthias Grisi heard a rumor for a secret bunker under a hotel in West Virginia. The entrance to the underground rooms was located in the basement of the hotel and was closed by a heavy lead door. The hopper contained water and food, electronic equipment and rooms.
The correspondent manages to find an eyewitness who previously worked at this hotel. He claimed to have met people serving the bunker. According to this witness, the bunker was built at the same time as the hotel and intended for congressmen in the event of a nuclear war.
According to the journalist, the rarity of press releases and the authorities’ unwillingness to investigate the UFO’s origins indicate that black helicopters are secret military projects of the Pentagon and the National Security Agency. The inability to find UFO bases indicates that the latter are in closed war zones.
Not everyone agrees with Grisi. Many ufologists believe that the phenomenon of black helicopters is of extraterrestrial origin. According to Thomas Adams, extraterrestrials are exploring the Earth and have created vehicles that look like helicopters, so as not to shock the inhabitants of Earth.
Grisi is currently investigating, and the mystery of the origin of black helicopters is still on the agenda.
In Russia, helicopter surveillance reports have also been reported.
Marina K. is a middle-aged woman who lives in Dimitrovgrad, Ulyanovsk Region. It tells the following story. In September 2012, at night, Marina woke up to the noise of a helicopter engine circling above the five-story building. Without turning on the light in the room, she went to the window and saw a helicopter among the stars.
The woman said she did not particularly understand helicopters. A flying machine with a propeller that looks and sounds like a real helicopter did not initially cause fear in it. The fear emerged later when the helicopter suddenly made a sharp turn and rolled in front of her window, then began to approach him.
The cabin had a wide window. In it, illuminated by a bluish light, the pilots were visible – two men and one woman. The noise from the engine suddenly subsided, but the helicopter continued to linger in the air. The large window of the helicopter approached the window of the marina. The room was flooded with blue light. The glass aboard the helicopter sank down, and the female pilot showed up from the cockpit.
She was quite young. She looked no more than 20 years old. She looked attractive. Dark hair, slightly combed in a modern way, dark eyes. A man a little older than her stood next to her. They were both dressed in bright loose clothes. The third pilot sat in the chair by the helm.
Only the woman spoke, and the men remained silent. She firmly told Marina that she should board a helicopter immediately. They were ordered to deliver her urgently to her destination. This was an order from the authorities. Failure to comply threatens to be in great trouble until detention. Speaking, she leaned over the window sill and seemed to be stepping into the room.
A frightened Marina fled the apartment. She went down into the yard and hid behind the garages. Half an hour later, she dared to go out and go around the block. The window of her room was wide open, but helicopter was nowhere to be seen.
She returned to her apartment only when it dawned. She found no trace of anyone else’s presence in the apartment. Later, Marina learned that at least three residents at her entrance heard and saw the helicopter at night. During the night in question, she had not for a moment suggested that they were aliens. She cannot explain the reason for the fear she has experienced.
Ufologist Vyacheslav Katalimov commented on the incident:
“Luminous spots were found on the apartment window, in those places where the pilots of the mysterious helicopter touched it. At the edge of the molding there is a brownish trace of unknown origin that the UFO has approached.
With regard to the fear of the witness, it can be explained by psychological impact. Apparently, with his help, the aliens intended to force the woman to move to their device to commit abduction.
The most remarkable story in this story is that, the morning after the incident, the witness discovered that her clock had fallen by an hour and a half. It does not attach any importance to it. In the meantime, it may be that this hour and a half has been erased from her memory. That is, she spent them aboard a UFO!
