Mexican Military Helicopter Spotted Flying Over Texas

Where were our military jets?  Why didn’t they scramble and “escort” the helicopter back to the border?

Lots of unanswered questions:

Mexican Helicopter Spotted in Starr County


FALCON HEIGHTS – A Mexican navy helicopter was seen doing surveillance in Starr County.

Residents of Falcon Heights, about 14 miles away from Roma, noticed a Mexican helicopter hovering over a home shortly after 6 p.m. Tuesday night.

Witnesses say the helicopter hovered for about 15 minutes over a house where a known criminal used to live.

Zapata County Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez Jr. says, “They had armored individuals in the chopper, open ramp, very military looking, in style and preparation.”

CHANNEL 5 NEWS contacted nearly a dozen government agencies on this side of the border. The Federal Aviation Administration directed us towards Customs and Border Protection who would only say they knew about the incident and that the Falcon Bridge was not affected.

UPDATE: Cavmom has left us a link with a much higher quality photograph of the helicopter:

    They are probably just on their way to pick up the congressional hispanic caucus so they can figure out how to get non hispanic caucus’s to pay for their criminal invader healthcare. On a side note it is good to see that hispanics have finally found something thats unites them, anti Americanism. They can’t get along down there but up here they are allies! Tells us everything we need to know. Brownie go home and take the hispanic caucus with you!

      In the not too distant future many Americans are going to say enough! Enough with all of you we want seperation from these people. Hispanics are going to find it harder to find work and eventually will end up in a similar situation to inner city blacks. But thats ok they can fight over the inner city, heck they can have it. I have already begun the, sorry no work here, standard reply. They only have themselves to blame, stupid is the word for it.

        The Indians held TX., and CA., before the Spanish did, and your kind were just slaves to the Spanish. Now, get you drug running arse back across the river Poncho.

    Gonzalez, the Zapata sheriff, said he couldn’t confirm reports that the helicopter was scoping out the home of a drug criminal. He said the incursion about a mile over the border took place over a neighborhood populated by many U.S. Customs officers who work at area border crossings — and that they knew what they were seeing.

    “My understanding is the U.S. military were informed,” he said. “I don’t know what action was taken, if any.”

    What would have happened if a citizen whose home they were flying over decided to take this “unlawful invasion” of their home’s airspace into their own hands and shot at the helicopter?

    They’d probably be retaliated against, but say they got a lucky shot that disabled the copter. Would they be arrested? If so on what charges? Of course, considering the Ramos and Compean situation they’d probably be turned over to the Mexican gov’t and be sent to the firing squad.

    • tgusa Says:

      Well if you got in a lucky shot and took out the hampster, err, engine, it would fall right out of the sky on its own.

    So is the Mexican Army tougher than they used to be? Jus wunderin.

  5. CavMom Says:

    Is this a test to see how quickly the US government will respond?

  6. Bill Reynolds Says:

    Not the same chopper. #1 with the 5 logo has landing gear. #2, the close upo has skids. Just sayin’.

  7. PB-in-AL Says:

    Interestingly, at 13:57 the KRGV channel 5 website doesn’t have any mention of this on their home page. The link above was last updated at 9:18am this morning.

    If you click the News tab the mention is halfway down the small print links at the bottom of the news story list. Is this really that insignificant or are they trying to let it get buried?

    Though you can get the video report from that link. I dunno, maybe there just haven’t been any developments.

    Pic #2 looks like gun pods on the sides…

    Makes me wonder what the Mexi boys are up to.


    Why do Americans make a big deal about this?

  11. islams not for me Says:

    Leatherneck is correct… North American indians lived in both Texas and California long before you aztec rejects did.

    I bothered to look up alittle history of texas and found the following.

    “Mexican Texas From Wikipedia”

    Of course you neglect to mention that the land Texas is on was French and Spanish and later after those countries lost thier ownership it was then you aztecs wander around.

    After all you have to prove ownership by both history and archeology that your aztec ancestors had temples in both Texas and Cali. So far I have found nothing to prove ‘mexican’ claims to either lands.
