Some info on these
Blackhawks; they were part of US Spec Op Command, and were here in Colorado
training with Special Forces (10th Spec Forces) out of Ft Carson. They were
praticing "helicasting" or dropping boats and troops into the water,
they would come in on the deck and pull into a hover about 5 ft off of the lake
(Chatfield Resovior) and the boats would drop and the Soldiers would jump out.
All of this would happen in a matter of seconds, and made very little noise
doing it. Also the paint job is flat Black with green stencils.

If you feel there is a need for descriptions for this walk around, then feel free to type them up and quote the photo numbers above and forward the descriptions to Steve Bamford, so they can be put up into this walkaround. We could really use our viewers help with this. An expert on this aircraft could write much better descriptions than we could.
