It's not often you see an aircraft carrier take waves over the bow. 
To put it in perspective, the deck is 102 feet off the water when docked. 
You can see the ship shudder when it crests . . . . camera wiggle.
You can bet the flight director was wishing he had parked that chopper a lot further aft.
This is USS KITTY HAWK

Oh my.  If you had to abandon ship, the dingy would not be much better.

WOW, that's one way to get the bugs off the helo.  If that one was not a hanger queen before, I bet it is now!

Had to ride on a flat bottomed LST in 30 foot seas! It was pretty interesting to say the least.
