A Black Helicopter is a helicopter that not only has been painted black, but one that also has no marking signs or unit insignias on it. Very often they are reported as being extremely quiet or nearly silent. A Black Helicopter is currently defined as a black, olive or maroon-painted almost silent helicopter lacking logos and unit insignias.

Normally, Black Helicopters are taken to be secret United Nations vehicles that are spying upon American citizens and are plotting a hostile take-over of the United States. This is part of the larger idea of there being a UN Conspiracy to take over America, imprison its citizens, undo the US Constitution, and replace it with a 'liberal, global, socialist, multi-lingual and multi-ethnic' tyranny.

At some times the Black Helicopters are said to be part of Cabal within the US government, or, if spotted in countries other than the US, to be part of a secret American project.


Eyewitness sightings of black helicopters have been formed into a chronology that spans approximately from 1971-1994.

People who have seen these helicopters include ranchers, rural property owners, mothers, deputies, farmers, police officers, horse-riding teenage girls, sheriffs, college students, pickup truck drivers, police detectives, groups of entire families, and retired Marines.

These helicopters have been sighted in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington state, Wyoming, New York City, Alberta, and Ontario, Canada. The geographical areas tend to be rural as opposed to urban, though Black Helicopters have indeed been spotted in urban areas, such as Atlanta, Georgia.

Some particularly knowledgeable witnesses have positively identified several black choppers as Chinook CH 47s, Hueys, CH-46s, UH-1s, Soviet MI-8 Hips, OH-58 Kiowas (Jet Ranger), Bell OH-58D (i) Kiowa Warriors, and Russian Hinds.

Police encounters

Several county sheriff departments and other law enforcement officials (like the respective state police, although usually the local police) have reported encounters with black choppers. Various police officers have sighted, searched for, chased, and shot at these choppers, as well as having been held at gunpoint by unidentified men in black clothing (believed to have come from the helicopters). Some police officers have seen unmarked, camouflaged helicopters instead of the typical black ones. (See sightings below).

Military exercises

There have been reported U.S. military exercises involving stealth helicopters under the guise of urban warfare training in city areas, like Stockton, California, Atlanta, Georgia, and Dartmouth, Massachusetts.

Roles in the New World Order

It has been speculated that black choppers are but a jigsaw-sized piece of a much larger puzzle. The theory goes that the Black Helicopters, along with other various pieces of evidence may be definite signs that the New World Order could take place by rounding up Americans into de facto concentration camps. Obviously, a critical aspect of the theory depends on the U.S. military's willingness to place American citizens at gunpoint; however, the theory insists that the U.S. military has already been co-opted by various foreign powers, specifically the United Nations. What is not explained at this time in the black helicopter-related NWO theory is the role of Cattle mutilations.

Complementing this theory is the one that states that the U.S. military operations in Iraq provides actual battle learning experience for urban warfare to be used later against Americans. According to this very new theory, Iraq was selected for invasion and temporary occupation because of the tinpot dictator. His lame military forces, the presence of Jihad-like insurgents, and the various hostile ethnic groups (considering only the ethnic groups hostile to each other, not the ones that act peacefully and/or want to be isolationist) are believed to be elements of an ideal real-life urban warfare scenario for U.S. soldiers. This theory is partly supported by a Popular Mechanics August 2005 article "Lessons from Iraq, Part 2" (insofar as the article states that U.S. Marines are getting substantially better at waging urban warfare). [1] A quick list of the supposed lessons learned from the Marines about anti-insurgent urban warfare:

  • "Lesson 1: Control the cities"
  • "Lesson 2: Small-unit training counts for more than weapons"
  • "Lesson 3: Own the night"
  • "Lesson 4: Low-tech bombs are the most dangerous threat to U.S. forces"
  • "Lesson 5: Adapt at the point of battle"

The article goes on to mention that, unlike World War II where the war was said to be won with strategy alone, "in Iraq it is the 'strategic corporal,' as the Marines call him, who must do everything from detective work after a bombing to building soccer fields to planning rifle attacks on the fly. It is the flexibility of these small-unit leaders that is the best hope for keeping the Iraq insurgency at bay." [2]

    To be continued.


To interject into this idea is the fact that there are organizations that openly report the fact they do not mark their vehicles or helicopters. NSA, CIA and occasionally FBI helicopters are unmarked because they are considered civilian vehicles; they remain unmarked as a courtesy to military forces, who of course mark their vehicles with the stars and bars. As these copters are non-military, there is no regulations stating they must be marked, and as many non-military entities in the US Government routinely lend their vehicles out to one another it would be logical to leave them unmarked. Finally, many of these unmarked helicopters may in fact be marked with US government symbols; with computer-controlled IFF tags becoming prominate identification symbols have changed from Vietnam era bright colours to extremely similar tones with the main hull that, at a distance, would be easily lost to an observer.

In addition, would it be wise to leave conspicuously unmarked helicopters as a vital part of a worldwide conspiracy? They are clearly very noticeable if this page is any indication. The most likely conspiracy theory would be that these unmarked helicopters are in fact a misinformation campaign.

I haven't read about black helicopters before but I have heard of them.
My impression before reading this was that black helicopters are quickly sent by the US army to areas where UFO sightings have taken place, either to dispatch of any evidence or for other unknown reasons.

Kind of ties in with what Fedge is talking about.

Previously I had only heard about them in this song:

I did a search for Arizona helicopters and your thread popped up. I have seen a huge increase in black helicopters flying back and forth, over Mesa Arizona. Every morning from 8am to afternoon there is at least one "blackhawk" flying North to South. Over the weekend there were two. It appears to me that they are searching for something or mapping something out. For all I know it could be google updating the GMap data. I dug out the binoculars so I might get a better look later on.

Now I say a lot on the Internet and out and about, Something I've posted or said on the web or otherwise have got my in a bit of trouble with whoever controls the Black helicopters.

It was late last year, winter, I'm a security Officer for a small company, I was at an Office Building site in Farnham I called control room to say I was leaving the site as my shift there finished at 2230hrs. after around 5-6 minutes of fetting the alarm and locking the building, I walked to my car.

As soon as I touched my door handle out of the field beside the building a black Helicopter flew above me and my car, It shown a bright white light over me shinning me and the car, I was blinded for a few seconds, it didn't make a huge amount of sound. I could hear the blades over the air, and I could see the outline of the helicopter it was black, dead black with no markings or letters numbers nothing, it hovered over me for a while then it left.

I wont lie I was scared, these people are powerful, I know they could have taken me then ane there or even just put a bullet in me, but thankfuly they didn't this was a scare tactic, a good one.

But there are Questions that need to be asked and answered: (I'll give that a go)

How did they know where I was working at that site, and the Times? Answer they know everything, theres not a person they can't find Im sure.

How did they know when I was leaving and getting into my ca? For them to catch me exaclay when I was getting into my car means they wearing listening into my Work Phone.

How did they know I was going to be alone? Where there surveillance teams near the site?

What did I say to make them do this, what comment or post (which I've made many of) touched a nerve with them?

Few a few months I've seen 2 more Black Helicopters around me, always when im near my car. It's strange to say the least. Black Helicopters with No markings????

I have just joined today and I have a photo of a black helicopter that was circling around my neighborhood for about 15 minutes last year. I thought it was too low and suspicious looking, so I took some photos. Can I post a tinypic link to it here?

Well here is the black helicopter that was snooping around my neck of the woods.

You know, the 160th SOAR uses black helicopters. Just because they're most likely SF aircraft, doesn't mean there's a conspiracy. How are you supposed to see the markings with your eyes from the ground anyway? Unless it really low, or you have a high powered lens, that would be fairly hard to see.

You guys have any close up photo's that clearly show the lack of markings?

Here's some pics of 160th Nightstalkers aircraft. Notice how they are both very low to the ground, and very close up images, and still it's quite hard to see the markings.
