The Maverick helicopters are the closest match but definitely a different color scheme.
I have some new info on this story, I have gone mtb riding three times since the incident and all three times I have seen a lone helicopter out in the
desert doing what looks to be training. The weird thing is that the helicopter has a cable hanging with some kind of weighted attachment on the end
that looks like its about 6-10 feet long. I was out there for 2 1/2 hours yesterday and it was out there the whole time. It would go to an area drop
down low and hover for several minutes, then it would go to a different location and do it all over. I saw it do this at least 10 different times.
What the hell kind of training is that? Another thing to note is the helicopter was not a search and rescue type helicopter, but more like the
maverick heli you linked. I was waiting for it to get close enough to me so that I could get the id numbers, but it stayed just far enough away from
the bike trails to be able to id it. The bike mechanic at my local shop also saw it when he was out there on a different day.
So I guess my question is, why would they be out there almost everyday doing mind numbingly simple drills. Are they preparing for suburban insertion,
extractions if/when shtf? Very strange!
