Times When You Just Have To Trust The Pilot

1. Tioman Island , Off the coast of Malaysia

Wake Island, Pacific Ocean

Macao International Airport

Kuujjuaraapik , Quebec !

5. A Rock, off the coast of Greenwood (Canadian Military Labrador Helicoptor)

Outstanding job by a great young pilot from Pennsylvania!

Can't add anything else to this...the picture is worth 10,000 words! If you don't think our military pilots earn their pay, you need to take a look at this picture.

This photo was taken by a soldier in Afghanistan of a helo rescue mission. The pilot is a PA National Guard guy who flies EMS choppers in civilian life.

Now how many people on the planet you reckon could set the end of a chopper down on the roof top of a shack, on a steep mountain cliff, and hold it there while soldiers load wounded men in the rear. If this does not impress you... nothing ever will.
