2x Chinook Landing at a Grass Field


During this video the 12th infantry Battalion Air Mobile (AASLT) of the Dutch 11th Air Mobile Brigade (11LMB) is dropped in the landing zone (LZ) near Rucphen. The 12th Infantry Battalion is also known as the Regiment van Heutsz and has a long history in the Royal Netherlands Army. The drop off was done with two CH-47D Chinook helicopters of the Royal Netherlands Air Force 2098 Squadron from Gilze-Rijen Air Base. Both helicopters landed on a small grass field simultaneous in a pretty confined area.
