A Chinook presents itself as an easy target to Taliban fighters. One of the fighters on the ground takes a pot-shot, and scores a direct hit.
Pilots are having a casual conversation about a tape that was recorded the night prior, when one of the Chinooks takes an RPG blast directly to the ramp.
This video is a perfect example of how cold blooded pilots actually are.
The second the blast erupts, all pilots on the net maintain their composure, and start sorting out the situation.
Listen to how cool, calm, and collected everyone is, and try to remember that one of these pilots just took an RPG to his tail end.
