Gary Oakley - The danger of Chinook helicopters
The Chinooks were a bit frightening too, because when they came into land, we had a lot of davits on a flight deck for the landing craft, and I can remember once the Chinook came in, it hadn't dropped the troops off yet and it got its wheels caught in the davit.
And it was like everybody run away, run away because we expected this bloody great helicopter to do a backflip on the flight deck. But, I mean, those kinds of things, you just took them as they came. It's kind of funny place.
