[Ed. – The significant aspect of this is that it’s linked to the construction of a SCIF at Fort Belvoir in Northern Virginia. Things that make you go, Hmm.]
The Army is carrying out a classified mission involving Black Hawk helicopters flying over the Washington, D.C., area, the Pentagon has revealed through funding documents.
The secret operation, included in the Defense Department’s annual reprogram request to Congress, asks for permission to move funds to support an “emerging classified flight mission,” Bloomberg first reported.
The Army needs $1.55 million shifted for maintenance of 10 UH-60 Black Hawks, for aircrews and for travel in a mission that includes active-duty and reserve troops.
The extra dollars are also needed for a “Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility” at Davison Army Airfield at Fort Belvoir, Va., directly south of Washington.
