That sure shows incredible piloting skills and the faith the soldiers have in him as well. Great photo and even better rescue. Chuck

How can you say that's just a model? Are you implying those men are just figurines also?

It's a real photo as far as I can tell. And it's called a pinnacle landing.

It is no model, various forces are always trying to "Do one better". For a long time it was thought the chinook drivers had this done best, two wheels and a ramp directly over them. Then the Seaking drivers had a go and put their tail wheel on a ridge too, then the puma and so on and so forth.

It is NOT a model or photoshopped, that is one of the easier I have seen. Now I need to remember where I saw the others, mmmmm. It is done by the pilots following a "Con" by a crewman who talks the heli into position, the same as if you are winching from a heli. Forward and left however many units. GREAT fun when you find a REALLY hard manouver to do .

And yes I do know what I am talking about, I am a SAR copilot and have done the tail wheel and main wheel trick in an S61N.

Give props to the crew chief, because it's their eyes that the pilot is relying on to make this manuever possible...it's definitely a joint effort. Great pic."How high do they go? Are those things hard too fly? How much do they cost?

Been there...done that. Way back when I was a young Navy Corpsman attached to Marine Air Group 26 & 29 out of Jacksonville NC, I earned my aircrew wing. On my first flight in a CH-46D, with HMM-263, I had the pleasure of flying with the squadron CO. The CO know he had the "Doc" onboard, so he thought he would give me a "good ride", one I would not forget! The crewchief strapped me into a gunners belt, and had me stand at the forward door, while the CO performed that exact same landing on a cliff...rear ramp down, rear wheels on the ground...from wheel hanging over the cliff. He then raised the ramp, nudged the heli forward, a little collective, and let her nose dive from the cliff for a few feet, before adding more collective to bring us into FFF. Of course at the time I thought the Old Man was crazy, but I never turned down the chance to flight with him in the future.Turn it and burn it, to learn it!

I still think that first picture is a photo of a model. Pretty good idea I guess. That would be hard to do since the pilot can't really see. I guess they need to add side rear view mirrors off a ford or somethin.

airplanebuilder: Perhaps you could tell us why you think it's a model, because as a photographer, and someone who builds models, it looks real to me (although low quality). It's not too hard for an experience pilot to do, especially since they often have a crew member leaning out the front door to get a view of the back. I think some of the later models also have cameras at the back.

This is as real as it gets. It is not a very difficult maneuver for the pilots to pull off. They train on maneuvers like this one everyday. It is very real, I'm not at liberty to give you reasons but trust me its real. I do have many ch-47 friends and it is pretty awesome to watch them do crazy landings. The Ch-47 may be a bit old but she gits her done. And WEMO hit it right on the head. Those crew chiefs are the bread and butter. They assist in flying and landing those boats more than a lot of people would think. They also have partial control of the aircraft via hand controls. Kind of like a Joystick on a video game. Although very small, I want to say somewhere around the ball park of 5% but it helps them get the aircraft over slingloads.

airplanebuilder: They look like a match to me. You're going to have to be more scientific, as I've seen so many people claim that real photos have been fake simply because they look a bit off. The longer they look at them, the more fake they seem.

Question, if this was a rescue mission in hostile teritory, who stayed up on the mountain side to take the picture while the bad guys moved in?
