You just have to wonder... Why did he land on the segment cracked off and leaning instead of the slightly more stable looking other one?[IMG]http://www.westwoodi.net/~smilies/contrib/lynx/yeldizzy.gif[/IMG]

It was probably upright too until he landed on it.[:D]

Please do not use 'shot' and 'helicopter' in the same thread. It might cause a misunderstanding for some VA residents and cause them to start shooting at it. [:D]

Now [b]that's[/b] a pinnacle landing! EDITED TO ADD: the other more horizontal chunk looks too thin if you look at the right side you can see it angles sharply. Aviator [img]www.milpubs.com/aviator.gif[/img]

I still want to know what an "Ice Tounge" is. My blues band played at the "Ice Lounge" once, but no helicopters landed. After the third set, we wouldnt have noticed anyway!

If you look close you can see that the Crew Chief is standing out the door on the skid. My job was to stuff them into my Herc to get them to and from the ice. [img]http://www.vaq34.com/vxe6/gentlexd158238.jpg[/img]
