Uploaded to TikTok by user @kellyjoyhalter, the clip is the basis for a lot of reaction and comments. “How to properly exit a Black Hawk,” is how @kellyjoyhalter puts it. “Awesome job!” writes @jro609. “Well done. Great job by the crew chief!” “People don’t realize how difficult this is,” notes @double_l_eum. “I want to do this,” says an inspired @staceycollins37. “Bro,” remarks @stuff_heckyeah, “This looks so f’in cool!” User @animul_howse has an observation to make: “It’s less fun with full combat gear,” he says. “Epic,” declares @circuspopcornmedia. “Stay amazing. The US thanks you for your service.” “The proper way to exit is from 1500 feet,” says @mbg_moeski. “But this is cool, too.” “I disagree,” writes @kommonkourtesy. “I jumped out of one at 1200 feet into a lake. That was the proper way.” To which the creator of the video, @kellyjoyhalter, replies, “To each their own, haha!” “You’ve seen it on the big screen and maybe even tried your Xbox 360 controller hand at it once or twice,” writes Popular Mechanics. “But rappelling from a Black Hawk chopper in real life is a bit more difficult than it appears. First comes the rigorous training overseen by a ‘certified rappel master.’ Done correctly, it’s a smooth descent to the ground in an area where the rugged terrain—or in the case of special ops, the hurried pace of the mission—will not permit a proper landing. Rappels are organized into three heights: low, below 75 feet; medium, 75 to 150 feet; and high, above 150 feet.” Recommended for you
