Helocasting is a waterborne technique used by small unit, special operations forces to insert into a military area of operations. The small unit is flown, by helicopter, to the insertion point. Once there, the aircraft assumes an altitude just above the water's surface and an airspeed of 10 knots (19 km/h) or less. Team members then exit the aircraft and enter the water.

It's a technique used to insert troops in combat areas. Usually Recon or other special Ops types.These photos were taken during training, normally you would have all your gear with you. This is conducted along large rivers and any open water. Aircraft flies low and slow and then you jump out. Great in tropical areas.

I was taking the pictures this time. But the first few times I did this I probably looked about the same. During training we try not to exceed 20 knots at 20 feet altitude. Anything faster or higher tends to sting a little. The goal here is not to skip the guys to the shore line, LOL.
