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.

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.

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.

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.............

Dunno if your browser shows it mate but there is a "wink" emoticon at the end of Closet_Jibber's post.

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.

respect to all the chinook pilots, they have got me into & out of places that i did not particulary want to be in during the last few years.

And I've seen one on a C-17, that was impressive.

The Chinook remains the most versatile aircraft in the RAF's inventory, and it's pilots are indeed some of the best, reflected by the number of DFC's and other medals awarded to Chinook force pilots, and the number of Chinook badges at high-ranks!

i was out running last night and a chinook landed.. cool says i panting, wish i had my camera!

it then waited for me to run past before it took off, flew sideways towards me then when it was pretty close (i was getting a little nervous at this point, thinking it was a rookie beatch flying) it flew in the completely different direction sideways, coating me from head to toe in sand before lifting up in the sky above me seeing what my reaction was. tossers, high class humour though. still wish i had my camera!
