In a repeat of events in LA three months ago, black military helicopters buzzed skyscrapers and high rise buildings in downtown Chicago Monday night, in what has been described as an urban training exercise.
Witnesses reported at least three Blackhawk helicopters flying in close formation, then separately, around offices and residential buildings for several hours.
Several smaller A/MH-6 Little Bird helicopters were also seen circling close to the Chicago River. The choppers are often used by military special forces.
Witnesses described seeing three or four military personnel hanging out of each of the helicopters brandishing automatic weapons.
The following stunning videos show just how close the choppers came to the buildings, literally rattling windows as they flew past:
WARNING: AUDIO IS LOUD!
According to The city’s Office of Emergency Management, Chicago is the site of an urban military exercise all week. In a statement, OMEC added that it was part of routine training and in no way related to the upcoming NATO summit in Chicago in May.
Other witnesses shot the following videos:
A Chicago Fox News affiliate broadcast the following report on the helicopters, heavily hinting that they were related to the NATO summit:
As we reported in January, the exact same scenario was played out in Los Angeles for a full week, with huge Black Hawk helicopters seen hovering over the US bank building and The Staples Center, along with four of the smaller OH-6 choppers.
A statement issued at the time by the LAPD, announced that the covert exercises were “designed to ensure the military’s ability to operate in urban environments, prepare forces for upcoming overseas deployments, and meet mandatory training certification requirements.”
The exercises are part of a spate of recent military drills to hit heavily populated areas throughout the country.
Back in April last year, residents of Brickell, Miami witnessed at least three large Black Hawk-like helicopters conducting military exercises over their heads. Some initially believed it was a movie shoot.
Further exercises of the same nature were reported in Boston in August.
