Must Read

Sparking social media posts and a quick investigation by Army Criminal Investigation Command, a static display helicopter was reported stolen at Fort Hood, Texas. After the investigation, Army CID special agents determined the OH-6A helicopter was moved for scheduled maintenance and was never out of army control. Army CID spokesperson Chris Grey, commented, “It was moved from one brigade to another to execute a contract to repaint the helicopter for future display.” While there were rumors on social media about the helicopter being stolen, some accounts posted comments, such as “I have a feeling no one stole anything, and this was scheduled to happen but someone in charge of it forgot or lost the paperwork for it.” In pictures in a Reddit forum, the aircraft appeared in a truck bed with the caption “Little Bird has been found.” The helicopter was simply moved for its routine paint job.
