Fooled me, I was figuring bringing in a crane... :-)
I figured they would use a chopper.
That looked so easy, I am sure it wasn't. Thanks for the update.
NFO, that's probably what they'd do in normal situations, but the previous story mentioned that the mud is really deep there. Even the boom truck that rescued the pilot had to be towed in by a 'dozer.Preppy, good (educated) guess. :)You're welcome, JMD. I noticed they only show the actual lift & removal. Hard to say how long all that took to set up.
Bet that was 'spensive, too.
I 'spect you're right, PH. Cost a pretty penny.
When I fly, I prefer my planes land on the ground (or the water if so equiped). Forty feet up a tree? Not to my liking! (Though the pilot did, eventually, walk away? That makes it a good landing, no?)
joated, the plane didn't land, so much as it simply came to a halt. But the pilot did eventually get down, courtesy of a cherry-picker from the local electric company.
Cool! Showed it to hubby.
