Military Helicopter Urban Training in Downtown Flint, Michigan  

Published on Jun 7, 2015

Please note this was filmed at night time with a cell phone so the video quality is bad in some spots but one of the two helicopters has the navigation lights on which makes it a lot easier to see. Also, there was a large crowd and coarse language has NOT been edited out.

Last night while walking in downtown Flint, MI by Churchill’s Food and Spirits, a Blackhawk helicopter flew overhead, barely above the peaks of the buildings. We noticed an ABC12 news van parked across the street and decided to see if they knew what was going on. Not long after crossing the street and talking with them the following events of this video took place. Two Blackhawk helicopters hovered over the roof of the building across the street and soldiers rappelled into the top story windows. After a few moments, a multitude of gunshots and small explosions appeared in several windows. Afterwards, the Blackhawks returned to the rooftop and retrieved the soldiers, flying over the large crowd that had gathered. After talking with the camera crew we discovered that this was all a part of a military urban training exercise, in conjunction with other exercises already executed in another part of the city. The exercise lasted about 45 minutes so we apologize for some of the choppy transitions as this was a bunch of shorter videos merged together.

Military helicopter damages Port Huron building

A U.S. Military helicopter caused damage to the historic Sperry's building in downtown Port Huron early Monday morning.

Around 1:30 a.m., during a military training operation, a helicopter approached the building from the east and the wind from the helicopter caused damage to the awning and bricks of the building.

Randee Farrell, U.S. Army spokeswoman, said engineers have already reviewed the accident and found that the structure of the building was not damaged.

"Rotor wash from a helicopter caused damage to the brick veneer along the roof line which fell and caused damage to the awning," Farrell said in a press release.

No one was hurt during the incident.

Farrell said crews would be working to clean up the fallen brick and broken facade before residents wake up in the morning. She said the U.S. Army would make sure to return the building to the condition it was before the accident.
