GoPro HD Video Of Sea Borne Helicopter Raid Operations Aboard The USS Curtis Wilbur
From last month: U.S. Navy Sailors from Explosive Ordnance Disposal Mobile Unit Five (EODMU5) conduct a helicopter, visit, board, search and seizure (HVBSS) training operation (with GoPro footage) aboard the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer, USS Curtis Wilbur (DDG-54).
EODMU5, who is embarked aboard the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76), conducted the operation from an MH-60S Sea Hawk Helicopter, assigned to the “Island Knights” of Helicopter Combat Squadron (HSC-25).
Take a look firsthand, at what it means to conduct operations on the high seas. A lot can be learned from watching these videos but there’s nothing like doing it in real-time, out at sea, with winds blowing, rotors blaring.
