    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...

    The funny thing is that when you look at them in the air, they "appear" to be flying nice and straight, anyone who's been in the back can attest to the "wobble effect" that is the CH-46/47.

    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.

    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 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 !
