Don't Try This With Your Sikorsky, Kids

Btsigblog has a “Credit for the Army chopper pilots“:

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 ass 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.

God Bless our military.

Indeed. But don’t miss the accompanying photo.
