    Helicopter lands on ship in rough seas

    A helicopter lands on a patrol vessel in very rough seas.

    This isn't just any helicopter; the Lynx was the world's first aerobatic helicopter, and also holds the world helicopter speed record (249 mph). The ship is a Knud Rasmussen-class offshore patrol vessel in the Danish Navy.

    That pilot must have the biggest balls ever as that was some pretty serious flying. I hope it was worth risking many lives and millions of dollars worth of equipment. Also would love to see comments from chopper pilots as to just how difficult and dangerous this was. I always wanted to be a helicopter pilot but this has me wondering.
