kangaroo duck
 n.— «“For Katrina, with all the water rescues that we had and all the flooding, we saw that there was a lack of capability to send a fully inflated zodiac boat with supplies and equipment,” says Lt. Col. Lee Pera, Deputy Commander of the 347th Rescue Group. So they resurrected an old practice, known as Kangaroo Duck or K-Duck. Here they will strap a fully inflated zodiac to the bottom of the HH-60 Rescue Helicopter instead of bundling it in the chopper’s cabin.» —“Moody improves search and rescue” by Alicia Eakin WALB-TV (Albany, Georgia) Oct. 13, 2006.
