    Don't know if it's a fairly common trick or whatever.

    Chinook Party Tricks
  2. Some years ago I had the misfortune to have a trick pilot, I thought it was odd when the loadie got into the pressup position prior to flying around the cabin immediately followed by several breakfasts making a reappearance.

    Pilots, all dickheads.
  3. Not all dickheads. I've got the utmost respect for all C130 and Chinook pilots. You've got to admit that the clip shows some cracking flying.
  4. Flying?

    Technically its good driving :wink:
  5. Doing helifam at Garelochhead some years ago, one of the passengers remarked that the Chinook was "Like a bus". The loadie must have passed this on to the driver because he plonked it down on the range road and proceeded to drive along it. Quite an experience.

  12. OK mate; if I have been reeled in by the WAH-fisherman then fair enough, I owe some people some ale.

    I might require a bit more convincing though.............

    I am not the biggest of crab fans, however one of my best friends is 7 Sqn, and fair dues, they can get you in where you want to be, even if you don't think it is possible.
