Two Chinooks were standing by nearby....want to guess how many folks that birdie will pick up and fly away with at a piddling 4,000 feet MSL? The US Army has flown UH-60's with 26-29 FULLY Equipped Infantry troops aboard in places like Iraq and Afghanistan....know that for a fact as told by some who dunnit! Seating Capacity does not mean Carrying Capacity! In combat, seats usually are removed and cargo straps are used in lieu.....you can carry more folks that way.

Some of ya'll need to put down the Checklists, SOP's, CFS mentality....and accept reality exists and life begins outside the box you build for yourselves with all the artificial constraints you find so comfortable.
