Helicopter Lands on Mt. Everest

Recommended Posts

From AOPA:Helicopter lands on Everest The summit of Mount Everest is no longer reserved just for climbers. A Eurocopter Ecureuil/Astar AS350 B3 recently landed on the world's highest peak at 29,035 feet, sat for two minutes, then flew off into the record books for the highest landing and takeoff ever by an aircraft. Taking off from its base camp at 9,403 feet, the helicopter repeated the feat the following day on May 15. It was piloted by Didier Delsalle as part of the company's efforts to show what production helicopters can do in extreme conditions.++++++++++This should be fun to recreate.Bob
