This post kind of has to do with weaponry! This is a pilot of a Chinook making a insane landing to evac soldiers and a hostage ! This guy must of had a lot of experience with landings like this. Watch the front of the helicopter it never touches the ground while he lays the back end down for troops to load up !

Does anyone else think the landscape in that area looks like it’s for agriculture? (see around 1:50 - 2:10)
Possibly a poppy plantation...

Yeah. I have heard from many sources online that soldiers from foreign countries have been planting and exporting that stuff out of the countries !

Also the CIA has be behind it in Afgan !! No not the CIA behind something like this again

www.infowars.com...




The CIA has been in the drug running business since the 1950s. In Burma, Vietnam, Laos, Latin America, and Afghanistan, the CIA — also known as the “Cocaine Import Agency” — has remained at the forefront of the international illicit drug trade. The journalist Gary Webb and the San Jose Mercury News tied the CIA and the Contras to a large crack coc aine ring in Los Angeles. Webb paid with his life for revealing this information to the public.

Afghanistan. Big Wendy.

Hold. Clear down left, clear down right. Andddddd.... 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Ground contact lights on, ramp down. Soldiers approaching tail from 9 o'clock. Aft gunner stepping out. Be advised, half a rotor disk to contact with rear terrain.

Crew and equpment secured, passengers secured, ramp up and secured, crew serve red and ready.

Clear up left, clear up right.

Yep cool video. I cant see the tail number, but left shoulder patch is 1AD, possibly. I couldnt see a sister ship either. May have been AH or CH or UH. More than likely UH or CH at 3 grand. Besides, the AH cant quite keep up with the 47's lol hahahahaha. At any rate. The pilots train to do those landings, its part of HAMMATS training. Still awsome to see it done, and even better to be on the ramp calling altitude. They did an awsome job.

You can see how close the rotar blades are in this pic. Touch the ground and down they go.

Don't they have a Load Master guiding them down?

Wellll once the aft landing gear touch the ground. The aft rotor head can have it trim actuator stewed in to create less lift allowing it to rest on the ground. While the front rotor head is trimmed out for full countrol. Orrrrrrrrrrrr given that terrain i would say land normal. With the difference in terrain elevation the aft of the aircraft is in groung effect while fwd is not. Either would work. The first option would be more stable.

Im no pilot though. The fox models are a bytch to fly in simulators. I love the 714's though. Lots of power.

Yeah, at just the right height to shorten some soldiers if they panicked. Pretty sketchy to be in the situation, in my opinion...

He's doing what he's been well trained and well paid to do.

What's the big deal?

Just another military incursion to kidnap "designated terrorists", from their own country.

The big point is yes he is well paid and well trained. This is just neat that someone is doing this in real life and not on modern warfare games. These soldiers do this kind of stuff all day everyday and the soldiers on film seemed pretty impressed at the pilot. So if they are impressed that must mean they don't do much evacs like that .
