I'm hoping to find out if, a film crew / production co pulled a permit for closing Wilshire Blvd.

1dunno1 But I've never thought of any version of an H-60 as being a "big" helo. H-47's, and H-53's are the big ones in my book.

Sidebar: Daddy Bush paid a visit to Moffett Field once with an escort of 3 Blackhawks. Talk about synchronization! Not only did all three crank their rotors together, but there wasn't a millisecond's difference between the strobe lights of all 3 helo's.

EDIT: Why helo's instead of a lower profile? Maybe to shake up the district Congressmen/women as well as Latin-American politicians. Like (ugggh) Obama said, "Yes, we can!"

I can see the shake up..

By big, I meant for a city street.

I've had art directors propose things that I thought questionable, only to have my favorite pilot say, absolutely not.. The FAA wouldn't approve and, I need my license. I did a job near SFO where we were approved for a very short time. The client was a big Gov/Mil vendor and, I think that's why it was approved. Air traffic in and out of SFO was made aware of our short work. Politics, I hate it, but, it's the way the world works.

Newsom is too drunk to notice much of anything, most of the time. Maybe his wife or some aid he stuppin will read him the story. But, don't bet on it.

Watch Night Stalker Choppers Descend In Unison Into Small Parking Lot Near Staples Center

http://www.thedrive.com

The scene is right out of a Hollywood blockbuster action movie, backdrop and all.

The video doesn't really tell the whole story though. This quick operation underscores just how complex this training is and why it can't be replicated in any sort of fake MOUT training site.

As you can see below, the landing site sits among a dense set of buildings, some of which are very tall. Even the parking lot that the helicopters quickly used as a landing zone has poles, trees, and wires that could spell disaster for a helicopter.

The parking lot they used sits next to an urgent care facility and if you look carefully in the video, one of the MH-6s actually lands inside the tight confines of the open court-yard like parking area.

More with photos etc

It would be nice if they sent the Army into Skidrow

If it is real, I'm thinking it's training SF for extraction exercises. Hollywood isn't the only city they've been practicing. They've been using other big cities as well.

Random fact.


I'm not overly surprised, but Florida has to be a close second place
