[I hope this is not a photoshop - there's no reason to suspect that it is]

Got this in an email. nice!

"This photo was taken by a soldier in Afghanistan of a helo rescue mission. The pilot is a MF 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. Gives me the chills and a serious case of the vertigo ... I can't even imagine having the nerv e .. much less the talent and ability ... God Bless our military!!!!!"

If you have ever been inside on of those things, this pic gives you a whole new level of respect. All I will say is DUCKTAPE!

That's impressive. I saw a special once where crews do high voltage wire maintenance hanging out the side of a chopper. The worker had to wear a chain mesh suit and lay ground rods on each side of himself while the pilot hovered next to the wire.
