Helicopter Lands On Ship During Raging Sea
Your Palms Might Sweat During This Helicopter Landing
Wow this is an insane landing – okay, maybe that’s a bit of an understatement. It’s hard enough to pilot a helicopter, now imagine landing it on a moving deck. Scratch that. Imagine landing on a moving, rocking ship under crazy weather conditions. Not the most ideal, right?
Just thinking about it already makes me sweat. There are so many things that could go wrong and one tiny mistake can quickly escalate to something more serious and disastrous. Take a look at the video and tell me if that doesn’t make you nervous.
I mean, all you got to do is take a look at the size of those waves! There is some absolutely awesome piloting skills going on here and also teamwork from the crew. This is a Lynx Helicopter being tested to its limits. Doing a little more research we found this to actually be an amazing helicopter that could do loops. One of the top of the line helicopters in the world. You should check it out.
First off, you need to have massive balls to even consider landing in this kind of condition. It takes a lot of courage to maneuver the helicopter in less-than-favorable conditions. That alone deserves so much respect! Plus, the pilot also needs serious maneuvering skills to pull it off. It’s crazy, I know, but someone has to do it.
Looking at this clip alone already stresses me out. You can’t help but hold your breath, wondering if he’s gonna make it just fine. It’s impressive to watch and while I don’t know much about the pilot, one thing’s for sure – he is skilled beyond belief. If no one recorded it and only told me the story, I probably wouldn’t even believe it. It’s insane!
