The notion that UFOs could be disguising themselves as black,
unmarked helicopters as well as conventional aircraft has been
proposed by such writers as Keel, Good, Howe and many others.
In Alien Contact, Timothy Good wrote, "The idea is not as absurd
as it seems. Mysterious unmarked aircraft have long been
associated with the UFO phenomenon, and it seems to me to be
entirely feasible that aliens might disguise their vehicles or
even produce facsimile aircraft (sometimes preposterously
unaerodynamic design), as well as render their craft and
themselves invisible, in order to keep us in a perpetual state
of confusion. A clue to this deception is provided by a number
of reports from New Mexico describing UFO's that imitate
During 1978, Howard Burgess reports, a Taos city policeman heard
what he thought was a helicopter hovering over his police car.
Stepping out of the car, he observed a large wingless
cigar-shaped vehicle hovering motionless above him. It then took
off and disappeared over mountains. In another incident, a
witness reported seeing a large round object near Dulce which
made a noise like that of an old two-cylinder tractor!
Yet, it is equally possible that in many cases, United States
Government helicopters have been involved in secret
investigations into the mutilations, and as a
counterintelligence operation, make a point of being seen in
areas where mutilations have occurred, thus drawing attention
away from the actual perpetrators."
In my book, 'The Pretenders: UFO's And CC&D' (in final editing),
unconventional aircraft (and other land/air-craft) using
conventional sounds in an attempt to disguise their true nature
are categorized as using acoustic mimetics. Numerous examples of
unconventional craft (land and air) using acoustic mimetics have
_Silent_, black, unmarked helicopters would not be categorized
as using acoustic mimetics because no sound is detected.
Furthermore, it seems illogical for an aircraft employing
methods of CC&D to be well disguised in one area yet neglect
other, important characteristics such as acoustic mimetics.
Anyone (or any thing) with the intelligence and technology to
employ CC&D would do so with great attention to all details not
just a few.
Although UFOs have been observed using many forms of CC&D, the
United States military as well as those of many other nations
have been actively involved in R&D in this area for many
decades. In my estimation, John, black, unmarked helicopters
displaying no detectable sounds are likely conventional aircraft
using only the basic components of stealth and the latest
mufflers for suppressing engine noise rather than UFO's
attempting to disguise themselves as conventional aircraft.
In addition, many of the myths being circulated on the internet
and elsewhere about conventional and unconventional aircraft
seemingly able to "wink in" or "wink out" need to be taken with
a huge grain of salt. Although many such sightings appear to be
misidentifications of common atmospheric illusions, these same
effects can be and are being produced through the many
techniques of camouflage, concealment and deception. In fact,
even objects that appear as everything from "cigar-shaped" UFO's
to "flying saucers" may actually be products of human initiated
R&D using CC&D. (More on that later.)
