I had a friend to send me this video recently of a Navy Seal Extraction. Please read the info below before you view the video.
Attached is a rarely seen video of a U. S. Navy SEAL extraction filmed from inside an MH-47 Chinook helicopter. The pilot has lowered the ramp, dipped the tail end into the water to partially flood the compartment, (a maneuver that requires very precise flying) and awaits the Navy Seal's to board in their F-470 Zodiac. You have just got to love the skill of our military...very few pilots would attempts this. It's too easy to lost lift, and ditch the whole chopper. He said that this was pretty cool, similar to loading tanks into the back of a flooded LSD or LPD using and LCU or LCMs. Now, click on the video.
