White-out conditions nearby a landing Dutch Chinook during a Snow Blaze exercise in Norway. The H-47 out of Rygge air base and flew to nearby forest areas for white-out condition training. The downforce nearby the Chinook is overpowering and enclosing typhoon force. Pilots and loadmasters train this to get used to less sight landings. As snow landings are a little less dangerous then landings in the sand, the next step in training is the Hot Blaze exercise, in which brown-out conditions are trained. Visibility in sand dust is near to none as remains for a longer period in the air.
