Is This How Were Supposed To Sling?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


I think i've been doing it wrong all along. I've been using that hard to reach spot in the middle of the belly for attaching my external loads.


I usually don't carry pax when slinging but maybe it's different if you use the toes of the skids versus the hook thingy.


This is a police operation with two loads of marijuana on the Big Island in Hawaii.


Fly safe,

Last year there was a report on tv about a big pot bust near Mont-Laurier by the SQuids. There was a shot of a 206 with pax onboard and "bundles of joy" strapped to the skids (not hung). As the a/c flew past the camera, you could see bits and pieces of hemp falling to the ground. I wonder if after they cut the camera they spent some time picking up these "gifts from the heavens"... :D
