Just Another Navy Day

Navy.mil just posted some very cool (but dangerous) photos of the USS Ohio hoisting an Army BG off the deck. I’ve heard of people getting medivac’d off the sub before and could never quite “picture” just how they do it…….well, now I know…..


080307-N-8534H-002 PACIFIC OCEAN (March 7, 2008) An SH-60H assigned to the “Indians” of Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron (HS) 6 lowers a member of the aircew onto the guided-missile submarine USS Ohio (SSGN 726) for a personnel transfer. Ohio is on a one-year deployment to the 7th Fleet area of responsibility. U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Barry Hirayama (Released)

  1. WOW! That is truly impressive! Looks kinda fun too! 😆

  2. Now we know why they are always worried about the transfer of the guys! Although it looks fun….it also looks a little big scary! LOL (Do they make sure they have a change of boxers just in case?!?!?)

  3. I think I’d have to close my eyes the whole time. 🙂
