Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Lynx Helicopter Operating Limit Development - YouTube

    In this video clip a Lynx Mk.80 of the Royal Danish Navy attempts to land on the offshore patrol vessel Ejnar Mikkelson (P571).
    This patrol vessel weighs in at 1720 tons, which is relatively light compared to frigates and destroyers, and thus it is quite lively
    in the rough North Sea waters.

    The patrol vessel is of the Knud Rasmussen Class and has been in service with the Danish Navy since 2009.
    The Lynx is the export version of the Royal Navy HAS.3 and regularly operates in the harsh conditions of the North
    Sea… and the pilot, well what can I say about him… one thing is sure, he definitely has Viking blood in his veins.
    He takes a while, but when he finally puts her down, note the excellent placement of the helicopter in its designated
    landing area after touchdown.:notworthy:

  2. Has been posted before mate. Quite brilliant though.
  3. Shown before but well worth showing again, good bit of film/flying
  4. Thats the thing with naval aviation.

    Unlike the crabs, in the middle of the Atlantic it is doubtful there is a nice flat airfield to divert to. Anyway, yer bed and hot meal are are in the chunk of metal you are about to crash onto!!
