Sweet landing aside, that's a really nice ship.

Bear trap....what bear trap?....we don't need no stinking bear trap :D
I will leave your flesh on the mountains and fill the valleys with your carcasses. I will water the land with what flows from you, and the river beds shall be filled with your blood. When I snuff you out I will cover the heavens and all the stars will darken. Ezekiel 32:5-7

Pretty cool, eh!

For those unfamiliar with those wonderful landings and take offs, they are brought to you courtesy of your very own Canadian Maritime Air Group and Navy. And BTW, the camera is fixed, so while it looks like the helicopter is "swinging all over", it's actually the ship that is rolling under it.

Enjoy, and thanks for sharing Baz.

For anyone who has sailed these videos sure remind us of the "fun". It seems that on every trip we always had on or two of these nights. Try being the techs who have to run out under that helo and hook up the messenger cable. I loved doing that but watching it now.... what was I thinking?

I've said it before and will again, Seaking pilots are the best in the world; they have to be. Apparently, this Lynx pilot's pretty skilled too.
Just because an opinion differs doesn't make it any less valid. Remember those who gave their ALL to guarantee freedom of speech.

Well, in the interest of full disclosure, some (but certainly not all) of the Sea King video is from the Air Integration Trials with the Halfax class lead ship (a dead give away is the ones where the flight deck marking is HX :-)

Those are the trials were you push the desk limit to try to find the edges, same thing has and will happen with Cyclone.
