RUSSIAN HIND (HELICOPTER ) IN THE US LEARNING OUR TERRAIN AND RUNNING PARALLEL TO THE HIGHWAY -
I've been following the likes of you, Gary Stearman, LA Marzulli, etc. for
several years now. I bought your Giants book and it is awesome. I hope to
get your others when my finances allow. Thank you for waking me up.
Everyone I try to wake up to the coming trials in the country thinks I'm
Anyway, I'm writing to tell you what I and my son saw a couple of weeks
ago. I'd read the reports of the Russian troops here in America. Well we
were coming back from Danville, VA on a Saturday afternoon. My son said
"Dad, there's a helicopter". I looked out of my window and flying parallel
to the highway was a helicopter that I did not recognize. The first thing I
noticed was the rounded nose and the tire placements and odd tail boom. I
knew it wasn't any US military that I knew of but it was definitely
military. It was a solid dark olive green, not camo paint scheme. I saw no
marking on it but studied it enough to know it when I saw it again.
As soon as we got home I got on the internet and looked at Russian and
Chinese military helicopters. It was a Russian Mil Mi-8. I've included a
link in case any readers don't know what they look like.
I guess they are learning the terrain, etc. May God bless and protect you
and your family in these coming days. I believe that God has abandoned this
country and who can blame him. The majority wanted him out. Now we as a
nation will pay for our ignorance. Even so come Lord Jesus. Come.
RECVD 12/12/13-BELOW RESPONSE FROM HELICOPTER PILOT
In reference to your alert on 11 December concerning the foreign
helicopter, some info in the title is incorrect. The MI-8 Hip is a troop
transport helo. They do train here in the US as we have been training
foreign pilots for many years. It is also no secret that we also use these
aircraft for our own training. I know of what I speak as I am a military
helicopter pilot myself. I know that your are not trying to create
disinformation, just wanted to make a correction.
