• This photo was taken by a US Army soldier in
Afghanistan of a helicopter rescue mission. The
pilot is a PA Guard who flies EMS choppers in
civilian life. Now how many people on the planet
can set the tail of a chopper down on the roof top
of a shack in a steep mountain cliff and hold it
there while soldiers load wounded men in the
rear? If this does not impress you, nothing ever
will. I can't even imagine having the nerve...
much less the talent and ability.

    • All Ch-47 pilots are graded to do that. I leave for Flight School in two months and I'll learn the same thing. Not taking anything away from how bad ass it is, but it's more the bird than the brains

    • It's impressive, but it's my understanding that that's a fairly standard maneuver with the Chinook

    • All you gotta do is land the tail there and then just not press any buttons on the controller. Usually there's a cutscene right at that point, making it even easier

    • It’s called a pinnacle landing if anybody is wondering. Fairly common. I used to be a flight engineer on Chinooks. Pilots train for those in flight school.
