Video shows Danish pilot landing a Sikorsky MH-60R Seahawk on a ship during rough seas.

The above video is of a Danish pilot landing a Sikorsky MH-60R Seahawk helicopter during extreme conditions. The pilot had nerves of steel trying to land that helicopter. Not only did he had to hit a target moving forward, the rough seas were bouncing the ship up and down. That has to be one of the most difficult things to do in a helicopter, which is already one of the harder aircraft to fly.

As hard it is to land a fighter jet on the deck of an aircraft carrier, it's gotta be way worse to land a helicopter on a ship like this. The video didn't say what kind of ship this is, but it was probably a frigate or a destroyer, a very small target indeed.

Not much else to say about this one. It was a slow news day and I couldn't find much else to post about. Still, a crazy video is always worth posting, even if I don't have too much to say about it!
