High elevation rescues can be some of the most challenging It guarantees that an aircraft is necessary in order to bring people down safely.
Melting snow, and hard angles can add to the extreme difficulty. Watch as a Chinook helicopter handles this Mt. Hood rescue with ease.
One hell of a pilot. WOW! Deserves a medal and a HUGE pay raise.
What people don't realize is that the majority of those in the military are 30 or younger. Bet you aren't thinking about that when that rescue helicopter is hovering like it was.
That was amazing! they are Hero's!
Best personnel , training And equipment!
CH-47s and MH-47s are one of the few helicopters that can operate with relative safety at those altitudes.
Really takes grit to backup and hover like that.
That pilot is no less than a superman, to have the nerves of steel to do such an heroic feat. I salute that pilot with pride.
I salute this phenomenal pilot! Wow..
Gutsy and excellent pilot. Kudos
