26. from the Rocky Mountain News
Black Hawk helicopters buzzed downtown Denver and other neighborhoods Monday evening in a training exercise to prepare for a possible terrorist attack.

The flights had people all over town calling authorities to find out what was going on.

Its nothing more than Special Operations Command training with local authorities, said Lt. Nathan Potter of Special Operations Command, which has authority over special forces with all branches of the military.

Potter would not say which branch of the military was flying the choppers over Denver.
