Black Hawk Down Black Hawk down started off with a Somalian man leading the U.S. marines to Aidad’s political advisor. When the word “Irene” was given, the marines moved out. The “skinny’s” burned rubber tires to signal to the rest of the militia to warn of the incoming U.S. troops. The Marines had successfully captured the target and were headed back to base when, a Black Hawk (helicopter) was hit in the tail wing with a RPG.
