chinookwaterThis 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. So awesome, it gives me chills!! You have just got to LOVE the skill of our military.... I think only Army and Marine Chopper Pilots and few Navy Pilots would attempt this. It is too easy to lose lift and ditch the whole chopper.

The fully furnished so-called "crazy house" has a kitchen, a bathroom, a living room and a sleeping room. Visitors have to pay an entry fee to enter this tourist attraction which is set upÂ at the local zoo. It opens to the public on March 30. (AP Photo/Heribert Proepper)
