That's pretty cool....what's the purpose of the small chute off the tail of the fixed wing plane? Keep it nose into the wind when transporting it?

While in flight it keeps the nose of the aircraft being sling loaded facing into the wind

Some loads suddenly (and violently) start to fly while you are flying them. A huey will and so will the older 105mm cannons the Armee used to have

Oh yea! I've done it. Last one was an old OV-1D Mohawk I slung loaded over 100 miles

The planes don't try to take off?....I mean... like, create lift, slacking the line and jerking on it?

Yes they do at times! Their behavior in flight dictates maximum forward airspeed. Generally you are flying 100 knots or less
