Helicopter & RIB

I was down in Poole a couple of weeks ago and had the pleasure of watching the marines play off Old Harry.

Did they drop anyone into the rib or just go off again with it under the Helicopter?

The rib and Helicopter formated and attached, helo lifted rib out of water and then winched all the marines in to the helo. They showed off for a a bit before fast lining the marines in to the rib and then dopping it in the water.

Drop me an email from my website and l'll email the video to you.

A couple of years ago i watched a chinook, in the same area, hovering just above the water. Then as it went nose up a rib , with marines/sbs already aboard, exited from inside the helicopter and got under way pretty much as they hit the water.Very impressive to watch but i wouldn't have thought it would do much for the chinook, maybe thats why they are now doing it the way you witnessed.

How many Chinooks does Brittain have? I thought we short of them...what a machine I'd have been a Helo Pilot but god intervened genetically at an early age.

Simon,

I have often considered this. I live under the Chinnok flightpath for Odiham/Lineham and we get quite a few each day crossing over. Never seen one with a RIB on it yet. Would be worried if i did.
