    What gives them the right to change the EH with US ? It may be american made, still why don't they keep the EH,
    Hell I hope that won't happen with the Chinese Airbus. Chairbus A320 wtf ?

    most of the helo's I've seen at the air branch in Homestead weren't eruocopters, they were the blackhawks.

    It doesn't say on their site whether they have the US101 or not.
    this is their Black Blackhawks.

    My brother used to be a Marine Officer in the Customs and I thought he said they were getting pretty old. Maybe they are updating them.

    Black Helicopters? There are no Black Helicopters, they are just a visualization of your imagination. And if you continue to mention them, you won't be here much longer either.

    Well it may have been, but I do know for a fact that it/they is/are black, and the USAF doesn't like black on non-stealthy type planes, because it doesn't blend well. Are the USAF's black?
    What about US Customs, they used to fly Black Blackhawks, maybe they are switching over?

    ^^No it's not black. It's grey like you can see at the photo. That's the TEAM101's chopper. So I guess that it wasn't a USAF helo.

    Are you sure it was the EH-101 ? Cause there's also the US-101 which is an EH-101 variant. The US variant will be operated by USAF as CSAR.

    Okey, it's not black but what the heck.. but it's one of them.

    EH-101 Activity at NAS JAX?

    Hey
    Over the past few weeks, I've witnessed the activity of a black EH-101 around NAS Jacksonville/KNIP. Considering that this type isn't operated by the USA, anyone have any idea what it's doing around these here parts?
    Cheers and thanks,
