    My local US training area sh*t happens

    Have a laugh this time on our cousins.
    3x humvees sent down and the parachutes did not open. They all landed in an open area.
    No one was hurt in the making of this video!!!!!

    Looks like the chutes popped open but they clipped the karabiners onto some plastic trim?!

    If only they were landys they could have excavated them from there craters and driven off
    I never make the same mistake twice.

    I make it five or six times.

    Just to be sure.

    half the time landys need work to drive out of a car park

    Funnier - there's a rigger going to get absolutely reamed for that haha. To all the Land Rover lovers I can assure you that heavy drop and Solihull's finest do not not mix and often prove to provide mechanics some 'remedial' work and can prove fatal even when the rigging does deploy correctly.

    I'm glad to see that our American cousins share our approach to such situations by laughing like **** at kit spanking in - that has brought back some fond memories, thanks for posting!!

    If they were Landies, they'd have had to push them onto the plane in the first place, and would've chucked them out without parachutes on purpose!

    They tried to ... After driving it into a tree and leaving it on the beach when the tide came in. It was indestructible and is in the studio on a plinth. Nothing wrong with a Jap truck. Just watch the news and see what the "baddies" have anchored their .50cal to!
