It always amazed me that those things could do what they do, let alone fly. Looking at them, they look like they belong in in ocean, not the sky!
The first time I was on one, I was fresh from AIT and just arrived at my permanent party. I was told that I could not get off until I puked. We ran low on fuel and hand to land... I made a run for it. Good times...
"Just blame Sixto"
That dull roar that used to give me a headache and the many hours sitting on cargo net seats...yeah that was fun alright. That and making carrier landings in the middle of a storm or rough seas brings back not so fond memorys.

Like custom guns and stuff? Check this out...
That is a great video. That pilot knows his stuff.
Spent a fair amount of time in some CH-46's myself. I like watching them from the ground way better than being in the back of one.
I'd rather ride in a Huey thanks
I rode in one from Cypress to the JFK in the med. Just an incredible machine.
What a video. I would like to have been strapped in along for the ride !
