EDITOR'S NOTE: During the summer months, the Napa Sentinel published
a series of articles on black helicopters and a clandestine
government base operating in Napa County. Through nationwide radio
programs and other contacts, the Sentinel has been able to accumulate
substantial information to show that Napa was not exclusive in the
helicopter-clandestine base scenario. Such activities have been
reported all across the United States. This article concerns those
They are black, unmarked and generally fly late at night. This is one
type of helicopter traffic reported over Napa this year - regular and
steady. Local air commanders have never confirmed the origins of
The local media, despite receiving reports of such activities
themselves, have attempted to make a farce out of the numerous
reports. The Napa Valley Register attempted to pooh-pooh the reports
as from crazed UFO followers and used a PacBell repeating station
photograph to "discredit" any clandestine base. KVON radio, which
originally confirmed the helicopter flights, just recently qualified
their previous reports by stating "if" such helicopters existed.
Neither media has made any serious attempt to trace the origins or
pattern of the helicopter traffic.
The Napa Sentinel reported the flight patterns, interviewed
eyewitnesses, talked to military and intelligence sources, and
provided a scenario for the entire phenomenon. Since that period of
time, however, reports have surfaced across the country. Black
helicopters overhead, unmarked. In a few ground sightings, the
occupants of the helicopters have been described as men wearing black
uniforms carrying automatic weapons. The helicopters appear almost
In the Watsonville area, one such helicopter landed. Law enforcement
officials went to investigate but left the scene when encountering
armed men in black uniforms. "We had black helicopters come over here
every day," states several Massachusetts families. " They were just
plain black, with no markings."
A Paris, Texas-based group, "These mystery helicopters are almost
always without identifying markings. The aircraft are frequently
reported flying at abnormal, unsafe or illegal altitudes. They may
shy away if witnesses or law officers try to approach. But there are
several accounts of aggressive behavior on the part of the helicopter
These type of helicopters have also been reported over Loring, Maine,
Wurtsmith, Michigan and Malmstrom, Montana, as well as northeastern
New Mexico. Military officials in Colorado state that black
helicopters seen in their area do not belong to the military. When
the FAA was asked to investigate black helicopter traffic over New
Mexico, Freedom of Information Act requests show they had no
investigation on file. Yet, the FAA did have investigators in the
field taking depositions from individuals.
Thomas Adams of Texas has spent a lot more time investigating the
black helicopter mystery than the Sentinel has. He has listed
hundreds of sightings from all over the country. In fact, the Napa
Sentinel is not the only media to be investigating black helicopter
traffic. Major TV and print media in Colorado, the Los Angeles Times,
KLTV-TV in Tyler Texas, the Kilgore News Hearld in Texas, the Denver
Post, the reports go on and on, in Colorado, Texas, Nebraska,
Wyoming, Montana, Oklahoma, Kansas, Illinois, South Dakota, Arkansas,
Alberta, Wisconsin, Berkeley, California, Missouri, Arizona,
Minnesota. Law enforcement officials in various states have also
investigated the black helicopter traffic.
The bulk of the helicopter traffic is seen throughout the United
States from August through October, with some heavy activity in
February, July, November and December. Reports have been received
from Monterey and Southern California, as well. Colorado appears to
have the heaviest concentration of black helicopter traffic, with
Texas being second.
Communities and publications in these areas confirm or suggest the
existence of underground facilities serviced by helicopters. "The
small amount of published evidence that is available indicates that
the great majority of these underground bases are for use by
government agencies in the event of nuclear war," states one
publication. The agencies associated with these underground
facilities include the Pentagon, CIA, Federal Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA) and the National Security Agency (NSA).
In May 1992, revelations came to the surface that a large secret
government bunker was located under the rich Greenbriar Hotel in
White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. It had been hidden there for
years. Only six members of Congress knew about the living quarters,
meeting rooms and banks of computers and communications equipment
installed underneath the posh hotel. It contains two giant blast
doors, each weighing more than 20 tons, supplied with water,
electricity and even a sewage treatment system. It also had an
infirmary, shower facilities, a television studio, radio and
communications equipment, phone booths and code machines, a dining
and kitchen area, a power plant and even a crematorium for disposing
of the corpses of those who might die inside the sealed bunker.
FEMA also operates a number of underground bunkers across the
country. Such installations are usually surrounded by high fences and
patrolled by armed guards. Only a few of the buildings appear above
ground. At least 96 underground centers have been secretly funded by
the United States Government.
A Chicago-based source with high credentials in such investigations,
claims that the black helicopters are not a military operation, but
rather are operated by the Wackenhut Corporation and FEMA. Wackenhut
is a private company that provides security in prisons, hospitals,
government installations and other facilities. It was founded by
former FBI agents and has been called the modern "Robocop"
organization. FEMA, has broad emergency powers. It was created by
President Jimmy Carter and has the ability to virtually take over the
country or any region in a disaster. With FEMA and the private
Wackenhut army teamed together, neither are regulated by too many
Though the helicopter traffic over Napa eased after the series of
media articles and broadcasts, they have reappeared again. In one eye- witnessed incident, at least four of the black helicopters focused
for hours on a site off of the Oakville Grade, northwest of the Fire
Station near Dry Creek Road.
While Napa is in its infancy in investigating black helicopters (and
some of the local media acting in infantile ways about the subject),
the mysterious black helicopters are a well-talked about and well- written about phenomena in many other western states.

A secret installation near the Oakville Grade is being used by the
United States Government for three purposes. Increased helicopter
traffic is directly linked to this installation.
The installations and helicopter traffic serve the following purposes:
Direct satellite communication. Continuity of the U.S. Government in
case of nuclear attack or other disasters. Secure communication links
with the outside world in the event of a disaster.
The helicopter traffic over the last year has been provisioning an
elaborate underground complex designed to hold government officials,
scientists and other high echelon personnel in the event of an
emergency. The helicopters have been transporting generators, food
stock, electronic and communications equipment, and other items to
The secret government site is replacing other installations and
combining them into one solid underground center. An installation at
Benicia is considered too marginal and vulnerable. Its functions have
been transferred to Napa. An underground facility in Ukiah, an old
railroad tunnel, was not serving the full purpose. The remote area of
Napa was selected to combine the functions of the Ukiah and Benicia
facilities into a more secure area. Napa is considered to be safe
from the nuclear fallout zone of targeted areas in the San Francisco
The facility in the Napa hills is heavily fortified and protected
with thick concrete. Its microwave tower is pointed toward Santa
Rosa, where AT&T has secure communications links. The microwave
dishes are to guarantee government officials with direct access to
national communication links. The government has always relied on
AT&T for those links.
The satellite dishes make direct communication with geosynchronized
satellites at regular time intervals. The communication linkage is by
laser, which accounts for the constant reports of light beams and
flashes in the area. The operation in Napa County is classified
according to the United States Air Force.
The area has been serviced by unmarked helicopters for some time.
There have been other helicopter overflights, some as part of the
Drug Enforcement Agency sweep and others are National Guard training
missions. But the main and constant force has been to supply this
The United States Government has similar installations all over the
nation. These facilities are all located in remote areas which would
not normally be targeted by enemy nations for a nuclear strike. Napa
Valley's wine growing areas provide a good cover for such an
Similar helicopter traffic has been reported in other areas of
California and the west, which indicates the government is creating
new facilities or is preparing for some type of disaster or upheaval.
The helicopters used in Napa are olive drab and also black, all
unmarked. The olive drab helicopters originate from Hamilton Air
Force Base and operate generally in late afternoon and in the
evening. The black helicopters generally operate in the late evening
and early morning hours. The olive drab helicopters are providing
supplies to the secret installation, but the black helicopters are
providing direct laser communication to satellites.
Hamilton Air Force base has confirmed that the helicopters originate
from their area and that the mission is classified.
