I mean the positioning of the lights and I really only noticed some dim white lights as it passed by. I dont know though, it's not as fresh in my memory anymore. It was definitly military though.


Looking at some pictures, it may have been a c-17.

I live in Trumbull CT. next to Shelton were Sikorsky Aircraft builds the Black Hawks, I see them all the time being tested.
They are all black before leaving the factory.

I remember a long time ago I saw about 5 dark helicopters flying just above the trees escorting a cloud moving at the same speed. There was rain falling out of this cloud. All of it passed directly over me. They were moving at a pretty fast clip. It was daytime. There was a military base about 30 to 40 miles north of where I was at the time in NC.

I was driving a big old car at one time and I thought an Apache attack helicopter was tracking me for several miles because I kept seeing it. Usually helicopters dissappear or fly far enough away you no longer see them. I drove into town and had to stop at a red light. Guess what? The helicopter descended right above the intersection and I could see the pilot. Talk about feeling like I was targeted. I was hoping I didn't tick him off at a bar or somewhere.

No, they aren't. All aircraft use red, green, and white, regardless of if they're military or civilian. The positioning, and whether they use strobes might be different, but that's the same with all aircraft.
Three times I believe you said there are no black aircraft and thats just untrue. Whether the ones people are seeing over their homes are black or not (and I believe many are) there are of course such a thing as black aircraft, it's no secret.

If you are going to quote me, at least get it right, instead of making yourself look like an idiot.

Here, all three of the times you are talking about.

#1. The dark green/low visibility markings that are used on helicopters appear black/no markings at any kind of distance.The dark green/low visibility markings that are used on helicopters appear black/no markings at any kind of distance.

2. The Army uses a flat green with black low visibility markings. From a distance it appears black.

3. They're flat green, not black. They look black from a distance. Black is actually not a good color for flying at night.

It's a refueling probe, they're MH-47Ds (most likely Ds, the Gs are still entering service).

Where did I say there are no black aircraft? There are plenty of black aircraft out there, but there aren't many black military helicopters, because black is a bad color to use to hide an aircraft both in the day and at night.

But way to move the goal posts.

I mistook your statement about the color of the lights as being in regards to the color of aircraft. Sorry.

Im in Seattle and we dont usually have military choppers around our skies, but the past week I've spotted them 3-4x heading north/northeast over Bothell area (around 1-2PM). Usually in pairs. They are dark and much, much louder than a normal helicopter (like someone mentioned you can hear the pop of every blade at lower altitudes).

I won't argue if they are green or black since I dont have eagle eyes, and it doesn't seem as important as why military grade helicopters are over a populated city. I mean they could could be headed to Arlington to help with rescue efforts with the musdlide we had, and likely coming from McChord AFB, but that's speculation.

I was just outside and saw an apache fly over heading up the coast heading towards portland. I found it quite odd since there are none stationed near here and it was alone. Thats the second time this week, but unfortunately I didn't have time to get video (stupid Maine trees).

Where are they supposed to fly? Almost anywhere they are there is a populated city, so unless they are limited to the desert they're going to fly over a populated area.
