No, this isn’t how you catch a helicopter. These U.S. Army soldiers at Fort Bragg, North Carolina are holding down ropes attached to a UH-60M Black Hawk while others prepare to rappel from the helicopter. Here’s a video from the Army’s Air Assault School that almost makes it look easy. No, not really. Watch the video and you’ll see.
The helicopter is assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division’s 2nd Assault Helicopter Battalion, 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade.
