Trust The Pilot...

5. A rock, off the coast of Greenwood
(Canadian Military Labrador Helicopter)

Can't add anything else to this... the next picture is worth 10,000 words!
If you don't think 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 helicopter 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.
