    What you consider normal ops is unbelievable to the rest of us, you are some pilot! And I thank God that you are on our side. God bless you and thank you for the flying circus.

    I understand just what you mean, Sir. I was an Marine infantryman in thr Arizona Territory of Vietnam from 1969 to 1970. During that time, one of your predicessors used the same meanuver to pick up Marine wounded. He landed his two rear wheels on the bank of a river and "floated" the front one over the water while we loaded the wounded Marines. I thought that was really amazing display of flying skill. Thank you for your service.
