This helicopter is the predecessor of the stealth Black Hawk from the bin Laden raid | We Are the Mighty

An online photo was released over the internet of what looks to be an image of a forerunner of the stealthy Black Hawk from Osama Bin Laden raid. According to an anonymous source, the aircraft is a YEH-60A at Edwards Air Force Base in 1989 or 1990. The source mentioned that the aircraft was nicknamed the “Black Blackhawk”. Even though the modern aircrafts flown by the 160th SOAR are not seen with any stealth kit, the release of the online image and Osama bin Laden’s helicopter are proof that the technology has been developed for a long time already.
