ヘリ訓練

THERE`S NO NOOKIE LIKE CHINOOKIE!

Chinook (3)

Hey everyone, how was your weekend? We had a great weekend as we took part in a really cool Disaster Prevention Exercise in the town of Nakagawa. If you remember last July there was a huge rain storm with lots of flooding and in a camping area in Nakagawa there were a few hundred people stranded and had to be airlifted by helicopter.

To be prepared for the next emergency we held a helicopter training exercise to simulate being airlifted into a disaster site and then conducting a search. It was REALLY COOL!!! The helicopter involved was a Military CH-47J Chinook a huge powerhouse of a helicopter that I`m sure everyone can recognize.

The exercise took place within the grounds of 2 Nakagawa schools, one was used as the helicopter landing site and one as the search area. The Helicopter arrived around 10:00 and the downwash from the 2 huge rotors sent the sand from the playing field flying in all directions and sending us diving for cover. Once down we were loaded through the rear of the huge flying bus, Mana wasn`t sure what to make of all the noise and the heat and smell of engines but she did great and didn`t panic at all!!

After be loaded we went for a 30 minute flight around Fukuoka to help get the dogs used to flying in a helicopter. It was a blast and brought back cool memories from my time in the Army. It was WAY fun!! Sorry for the blurry pictures but the whole thing was shaking!

After returning to the school ground we were loaded into a Nakagawa town vehicle and driven to the next schoolyard were we conducted a couple of searches. Mana and Cherry, Miono Sans Lab both did a great job during a really fun day!

Our next hiking adventure will take place this weekend on Saturday the 13th when we will travel to Mt. Sobo for a great day of outdoor fun!

Until next time, Happy Trails!
