Tight parking spot

One of the reasons the Army uses Chinook helicopters in Afghanistan so much is that the high altitude mountainous terrain is a real challenge for other helicopters. The Chinook has power and lift to spare in the high, thin air. But one of the problems associated with mountains is that there’s a real lack of decent Landing Zones. How do you solve that problem? With some very skillful flying.

  1. “Talking about flying with your a** hanging out, Wow!” Without the sarcasm, you are seeing some really talented people.
