Don. The NS guys that crashed in the Bin Laden compound had trained in a mock up with a chain link fence but the air was not stable when they went in because it was a solid fence. Can you talk us thorough how that fence can cause that instability that led to the copter going down?

Typical...

And not unusual

Been there did that...

One day the film crew shows up on my ramp. They want to get "Action shots" of pilots flying the aircraft.
They had us dress up all tactical like get in the aircraft and start it up. The guy with the camera filmed from below the aircraft, shooting up through the "Chin" bubble while we ran the aircraft flat pitch sitting on the ground. Those "Action/flying" scenes made it to be some recruitment advertisement.

All of that stuff is canned. You don't think Hollywood or any add firm photographers are going to get anywhere near a combat zone, do you?
When I think of those people, an older Don would have thought of a word that started with a P, has some S'es in it and ended in "ies"

Oh yea, I used to do that, and while blacked out on NVG...even in clouds! Those crazy C130 guys were airplane flying, and never realized helicopters are afraid of clouds!
Yea one night I was "On the hose" up around 13,000 near Albuquerque. I was fighting the thing because of turbulence and it had been a long flight to that point. So while I'm on the hose, all I'm looking at is the hose which you have to push in and maintain it within a 10 foot distance, and trying to stay on the wing horizon which means keep the little batwing engine oil cooler right on the horizon, all the while looking right down the dump tube. The rotor blades get down to 15'4" from the herc. So while all this is happening, he goes into a cloud and starts a turn. All I am looking at is that wing maybe 35 feet away and very close to my tip path plane so I wouldn't know if we were inside a volcano!

Kevin, the other pilot says, "Hang in there Big D, only about 120 degrees of turn left." "Turn? We in a turn?" is all I could say. Like I said I wouldn't have known if we were upside down. Aerial Refueling is really difficult to do. I was the 13th guy ever qualified in the US Army
