alphabet agencies use them pretty regular.
DoD, ATF, FBI, CIA, NSA, DEA, US ARMY, JSOC... all have been known to use unmarked (subdued) black helos.
so it isn't necessarily the MIB.
i've seen a few black helos. but they looked like they were more up to routine military or police maneuvers. (?!)
once i saw several in formation, looked like a drill or patrol. they were apaches, but black and unmarked none-the-less. they flew so low that it
shook the house and rattled the pots & pans. the whole neighborhood ran out to see. the choppers were armed to the teeth. this was when i was a kid,
apaches were fairly new. happened in broad daylight. loud as all hell breaking loose.
once i saw three black helos flying in some sort of search pattern, looked they were tracking a fugitive or something. (mid 90's) these looked more
like police choppers, but were painted flat black. they were scattered all around the area but still flying in unison... same altitude, speed, etc.
like 'circling the wagons' but over a several mile radius.
this one was strange though...
the last time i saw a black helo was more recent. maybe two years ago, max. this is the only time i've seen one that was alone. (and the only time
i've seen one while alone.) i was sitting here at the keyboard late one night and kept hearing a chopper engine. i ignored it. i live in a large
city, so choppers are common. but after a while my curiosity got the better of me. i kept hearing it. sounded like it was far away, but when i looked
out the window i felt the glass vibrating and saw a small black helo hovering over the neighborhood. looked like it was dialed in on a house. as close
and low as it was, seems like it should have been much louder. it had only one light that i could see, it was green and flashing. (very military if
you ask me.) i remember telling myself "no F'ing way"... then thinking it must be a drug bust. so i ignored it again... until curiosity forced me
to peek through the blinds. i watched it for several minutes, went & got a pair of binocs to get a good look. i could only see it's shape from the
strobe. a search light came on but shut off abruptly. the whole experience was a bit creepy. i watched it until it flew away... quietly.
