The flight deck on a surface combatant is a dangerous, fast-paced and loud environment, but it’s also exhilarating.

Sailors deployed around the world conduct hundreds of hours of flight hours each day, performing search and rescue, surveillance and resupply missions among others.

This morning, Naval Forces Europe posted a GoPro video on its Facebook page of the chock and chain crew on board the destroyer Jason Dunham clearing an MH-60 for takeoff. If you have a case of the Mondays and need some motivations, put your headphones on and crank the volume for this bad-ass video.
