Since the UH-60 Black Hawk needs some love...

Those of you who follow me on Facebook have probably seen this video, which I got from Jamie McIntyre at The Line of Departure.

However, for those of you who have yet to see this, here are some amazing mountainside landings conducted by Lt. Col. Carey Wagen and CW2 Jesse Ashhurst of the 2nd Battalion-82nd Aviation Regiment of the 82nd Airborne Division from Fort Bragg, NC.

(Ed. note: as is the case for the rather small Army Aviation community, I served with both Lt. Col. Wagen and CW2 Ashhust while a mere lieutenant in the 82nd Airborne Division)

Wow amazing footage. Can't believe those little figures climbing up that really steep terrain.

"that's got to be a landing right there."

Excellent stuff.
