    Interesting that the rotor wash took a while to clear the fresh snow and visibility was Zero...once the loose stuff was gone, he Nailed it. Got to have some guidance sleeves or something? Some odd angular pieces on the base. I know they have cameras and such but the pilot has to keep it straight under the wash and not let it twist and shout while the cargo master puts it in place. 2 part Harmony...SKILLS!

    Shocking as the acrophobia was getting the best of me while watching.
