Helicopters are just to cool . I saw Life light make a unusual decent / almost dive today outside Houston .

I am guessing you must not ride your poop hard. Cause either the clutch or the tranny's dogs or shift forks metal always go to the mag plug. As long as there is no slivers or crap load of metal on the plug its fine. Ride it like you stole it and the mag plug will pick it up!!!

Yep!
I believe the contractor to the USFS at the time was a co called Evergreen, but that was so many drugs years ago. I do remember clearly that all the pilots were vets, pulling off stunts (mountain top landings, e.g.) that enthralled me but was "nothing" to them, mainly because no one was shooting at them:D. Transported 12 of us, + pilot & co-pilot. That sound right?

Some of those pilots were miracle workers with a helo...a few guys on this forum served with the Cav during Viet Nam, they have some stories...

12 is a standard sized section so that sounds right.
