Ever want to know what it’s like to be in a sinking upside down, underwater helicopter? Well you’ve come to the right place if you want to watch a video on it. If you want to actually do it, head over to join the military.
U.S. Marines with Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 262, learn what it is like to be in a sinking helicopter during a helicopter sea crash simulation in the helo dunker underwater egress trainer (modular amphibious egress trainer).
The insane Marine training documentary shows exactly how United States Marines learn to escape from a submerged aircraft to survive a helicopter crash during an intense USMC exercise. There is always the possibility that an aircraft can crash in water and Marines need to be able to escape from it.
The hull sinks into the water and then it turns over, simulating a helicopter flipping over.
