Re: video : Wounded crashed Gazelle pilots evacuated on Tiger wings under fire

Nice video and interview!

By the way I have found quite strange that the crew never had a training on that: I remember in one of the many airshows i have attended an AW-129 demo showing how to carry a crew member in emergency, with the guy sitting on the landing gear.
