Watch a Helicopter Pilot Nail a Ship Landing in a Ridiculous Storm

Just try and imagine what this Royal Danish Air Force pilot was feeling while trying to land a Seahawk MH-60R helicopter on a boat while both were being tossed around in a North Atlantic storm.

It’s also where he learned to drink weapons-grade bad coffee.
