|Black Helicopters 1999!|
According to UFO Roundupmore black helicopter reports came pouring in last week from several states of the USA, plus one report of a strange truck convoy in upstate New York.
According to Pennsylvania ufologist Stan Gordon, on Thursday, March 18, 1999, between 3 and 3:30 a.m., there were dozens of black helicopter sightings all around the city of Pittsburgh.
"There were numerous accounts of one or more military helicopters reported from many locations in southwestern Pennsylvania," Stan reported. "The choppers reportedly were flying quite low and observed by many people."
"I also received a report at 3:05 a.m. from the Pennsylvania/West Virginia border--a military chopper flew over a house at an altitude estimated as less than 500 feet. The chopper came from the south and went towards the north." (Many thanks to Stan Gordon for this report.)
On Wednesday, March 17, 1999, at 8:30 p.m., a black helicopter reportedly buzzed a ufologist's home just south of Indianapolis. According to Richard Broadstreet of UFO Research Center of Indianapolis, "I saw it pass over my house and going north. It was so low, I heard the whirring of the (rotor) blades over the TV's sound. It was real low and heading towards downtown Indianapolis."
Fifteen minutes later, at 8:45 p.m., he added, "It just passed over my house again and was heading south. It was as low as it was the first time."
On Thursday, March 4, 1999, residents of Cedar Hill, Texas (population 19,976), a town on Highway 67 about 15 miles (25 kilometers( southwest of Dallas, sighted "three black helicopters hovering at treetop height" over a residential neighborhood.
On Monday, March 15, 1999, at about 6:30 p.m., a solitary black helicopter, identified as a UH-60 Blackhawk, flew southward across Tampa Bay and hovered for five minutes over East Fourth Avenue in St. Petersburg, Florida (population 238,629), a large city on the Gulf of Mexico approximately 260 miles (416 kilometers) northwest of Miami.
Amazingly, witnesses said the helicopter had been performing the same odd maneuver for 21 consecutive days. The chopper retreated due north, following the same flight path as its approach.
On Saturday, March 13, 1999, a solitary black UH-60 helicopter flew slow circles and hovered over Inniswold, Louisiana, a town on Highway 73 about eight miles (11 kilometers) southeast of Baton Rouge, the state capital. (Many thanks to Newswatch magazine for March 16, 1999 for these reports.)
And, in the category of strange convoys, Claudia C. reported a weird incident that happened to her as she was driving on Interstate I-90, the New York Thruway, near Albany, the state capital.
"I was enroute to my mother's house off Exit 23 in Albany," Claudia stated, adding that the incident occurred on a Saturday in late January 1999. "I moved over into the middle lane to pass a slow-moving vehicle. I was driving along very nicely when all of a sudden a loud airhorn blew from behind at me. I jumped and was startled to see" a large, heavy-duty trailer truck that "looked like it was almost in my back seat, it was so close."
"The blue and white truck was so high you couldn't seen the inside of the cab. I was going almost 70 (miles per hour--J.T.) and instead of passing me in the fast lane, he tried to push me out of the way. The truck was huge, much bigger than a regular truck and at least the size of a large tractor trailer, plus half the length of (another) one. This guy was going at least 80 miles per hour. It (the tank trailer) said Water on the side."
"Then I saw three identical (water) trucks traveling fast right behind him. They wanted the middle lane, and they wanted everyone out of the way. There were no (license) plates on their vehicles--nothing to indicate where they came from."
Stopping at the toll plaza, Claudia noticed that the four trucks "were at a booth where you swipe a card (to get through) instead of paying money." As she headed for Exit 23, she "was seeking in my mirror for the giant trucks when I noticed a pickup truck was waiting by the side of the highway with a white flag on the back of the truck on a pole...I saw the giant trucks follow with the Thruway truck leading the way. They headed toward the south as I exited the Thruway. Let me tell you, they were going 80 miles per hour, perhaps 90."
As for her thoughts on the incident, Claudia added, "I heard that FEMA moved into the mountains in Thatcher Park and wondered if they (the convoy) were part of the secret government shenanigans we all read about. This ole girl was becoming a raving paranoid real quick!"
