That is friggin cool. Never had to opportunity to do a water landing. They are pretty rare. I know people who have done it. Just about the only guys who get to do it now is the Night Stalkers anymore. If I hadn't have gotten married, I would have gone 160th years ago.

I'm not 100% sure but I think they actually keep the bird moving forward and just dip the tail section in the water for those extractions. Any way you slice it, it's cool. :up:

Nope, the whole aircraft lands in the water. With drain plugs installed, a Chinook can float in the water for up to 30 minutes with the blades not turning. It appears they hovered slightly in the water in the video. If they landed completely, they water would have been up to just below the window, which is called water line 0. (zero)
