Do You Trust the Pilot?

The first three shots are of some of the shortest and narrowest runways at major airports around the world.

Macau International Airport

Tioman Island , Off the coast of Malaysia

Kuujjuaraapik , Quebec

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

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 the picture below.
Amazing helicopter pilot skill in Afghanistan.

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

Now how many people on the planet you reckon could set the rear 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 back? If this does not impress you... nothing ever will.
