MHQ retrieval attempt

Buzz, Rybak, Snake, and myself we're sling loading a HEMTT MHQ from the FOB to mainland to use instead of the Huron due to being shot down by so much AA all the time. While flying to the mainland the cargo ropes let go of the HEMTT plunging it to the bottom of the ocean. Snake and myself donned our wetsuits, Buzz brought the Huron back and Rybak had a recovery boat and the idea was to extend the cargo ropes long enough to reach the HEMTT and Snake and myself would attach the ropes allowing Buzz to bring the HEMTT out of the water.

It was a fun trial piece, reminding me of the Koenig Hemitt rescue mission effort a while back.

Next time this happens I would like to try shortening the cargo ropes using the Huron winches to lift the salvage item from the water .
Thanks for posting the video Macon.

Awesome. I have to revive some of my deep sea operations.
