    Correct, there are static lines for Blackhawk jumps. The deployment bag weighs down the static lines, so there's no whipping around, just the bags hanging from the chopper, which are usually picked up after both sticks have left the Blackhawk.

      Very cool. I've seen jumps from CH-53's, but that tail rotor sits much higher on the horizontal axis of the ship. Never seen jumps from a Blackhawk, though. Thanks for the info, I've officially learned something new today.

          The Chinook will spoil you, you will never want to go back, except for a UH-60.

                            See!!! There's not a single bit of raping going on in those pics. Tell your mom she has nothing to worry about, except that hat you were wearing. The proof is in the pictures.
