That looks so dangerous to hook up. I thought it would be hooked up before it took off. I wouldn't want that gig.

Here are a few of my Chinook/Landy pics from Kuwait just before the invasion in 2003.

I was out with the British Commandos while they were practicing insert and extract with the LRs. In one pic you can see the LR STUFFED inside the Chinook. They were trying to decide whether to sling load or interior load the trucks.

I am not sure what S.O.P. is for hooking them up.

But Chinook pilots are whack-jobs (my Dad was one in Vietnam and Desert Storm as a Warrant). He has some videos that make this look like a walk in the park. One of the best ones is when he did a High Altitude Extraction on Mt. McKinley because some climbers got stuck.....

Coast Guard Pilots are not too far behind, been told to get out of a perfectly flying helicopter in the Bering sea (with a leaky gumby suit)... This was an initiation

Thanks for the Video.

I would not want to be the one hooking that up.

Oh hell that was fine. I did see that it rotated just a touch but that is fine for in the field work. Not like you have a scale to measure every bit like you do back on a proper base.

I've flown with a lot Allied helo pilots, and the Brits are by far the craziest. They do things and take risks that US pilots wouldn't even consider.

Cool; thanks for posting.

Check out the B52 landing without a vertical stabilizer; flew 5 hours with no fin and landed safely.

This one didn't end so well; thoughts and prayers for the crew (they survived):

And look middle of frame to the left at impact about the 25 second mark--amazing no one on the ground was killed.

And why the Ford Fiesta commercials on there in Spanish?

Everyone survived that one. Hotdogging in cold, thin air never agrees with a helo.

I'm actually surprised they survived. Pretty damn lucky!

I'm amazed that it took only 60 seconds from lift-off to pick up the Rover.
