Lynx Helicopter Ship Landing

When helicopter pilots have to fly and land on ships in conditions like this they earn every dollar they are paid.

Operating helicopters onboard ships is extremely complex and dangerous, due in part to the difficulty of landing a helicopter on a moving platform, but also due to numerous practical engineering issues. This video shows a landing conducted by a Prism Defence Test Pilot and Flight Test Engineer in a Lynx Mark 90B helicopter onboard the KNUD RASMUSSEN class Offshore Patrol Vessel.
