That's a risky manouever! Reminds me a bit of the Italian Job, getting the minis on the coach, but even more dangerous.

The following was posted with the clip:


Attached is a rarely seen perspective: a video of a U.S. Navy SEAL extraction was 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 quite precise flying) and awaits the Navy SEALs to board in their F470 Zodiac.

last time I saw a moving vehicle board another moving vehicle was when jamie savage on myth busters put a sports car inside a semi, but using an aircraft to pick up a zodic speedboat  :o :o

I hope they don't need that Chinook to last too long! Salt water = aluminum (the american sort) = bad news. Or perhaps they've found a special SEALant  for it.
