These Secret Helicopters Were Flown By A Shadowy Unit During The Battle of Mogadishu

In August 1993, a joint U.S. special operations force, known as Task Force Ranger, with personnel from elite units across the services, deployed to Somalia. Its principal objective was to hunt down and capture warlord Mohammed Farah Aidid and other senior militants responsible for orchestrating attacks on U.S. and U.N. personnel in the country. There is also significant evidence that this task force received support from two Little Birds from one of the U.S. military’s most top-secret aviation units, the Flight Concepts Division.
