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.
yes it is real and SEALs are navy so it was navy pilots conducting the extraction
Yes the video is real but I am afraid your first commentor is mistaken. This video is actually part of the Delta Force briefing that all Non-Commissioned Officers are required to take at least once in thier career. I saw at Ft Stewart in 1995.
thank your for your post and the rest. you know..
