    It's sceptics at Ft Bragg, guy that posted it said it was a pointless exercise. He said the chopper came down 50ft when they started to climb and they ended up crawling along the grass. I wonder if it was a drill for a rescue from a swamp or something?

    We did that in 1980's at Fort Campbell with the 101 Airborne when we did some work with the Yank's, it was quite easy, and it is a good form of extraction.

    I hope if they ever have to use it in reality that they have some bloody good protective cover while their emplaning Because a hovering chopper sticks out like a Bulldogs bollocks, and so do the poor buggers emplaning !

    It did'nt want to twist ? Whats it made of ? Rope or steel cable ? Must be rope. Steel cable would be too heavy. Thats blind faith in the Chopper Pilot and the mechanics that service it right there.... but then ain't it all blind faith. How high was you off the deck when you climbed in ?

    Thats what I was thinking Bob. They could not do that with enemy in the area. Thats what that roped hot extraction is for eh ? Even that would be dodgy but at least you are moving

    Bollox, not a military exercise at all, its the window cleaners convention held in Wigan every 2 years, to highlight new window cleaning methods.

    They gave you a reserve? lucky barsted. we were happy if we got a main.
    I told myself that I should stop drinking, but I'm not about to listen to a drunk who talks to himself.

    We only carried it for extra weight to exercise the arms when we shinned up the rope,then we'd ditch it,and sometimes the main if it was in the way of carrying extra bacon and eggs,and then get the plane to fly low over wheat fields to give a softer landing when we hurled ourselves out,head first to avoid any damage to containers!

    Was a cop in Wigan when the Casino was in full flow. Never any trouble from the kids inside, they just danced themselves to a standstill. Not sure why the f**k they shut it down, claims about drugs but the cops never came across many stoned dancers, and if they were they were no trouble. People came from all over the UK to Wigan casino every Saturday night

    I had mates used to go up there. Quite a few Lancashire lasses living in my town...having bin "recruited" at the Casino. Manchester birds as well. Just found out on FB that one of me mates who met a stunning looking Geordie bird from Newcastle up there.... hung himself after she went back to the Wilds of The North. Fookin' idiot. He should have had a word with Dave...
