Note from ARC Editior:  The faces of individuals in the pictures below  have been "whited" out to protect their identity.

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.
