    In the 1968 John Wayne movie "The Green Berets", there's a scene at the end of the film where a captured NVA officer is taken out of the jungle using a similiar type of equipment with a C-130.

    FF to around the 7 minute mark of the video and you'll see it.

    In one of the episodes of "The Unit" they used this system to pick up
    Dennis Haysbert, using a C-130.
