Class D

Recommended Posts

As grotesque as it may sound, I know of one high altitude, Class D, mountain rescue pilot who had to strip his machine down to bare bones and design a "treble hook" in order to try to retrieve a deceased fallen climber at a location over 15,000 ft so that the family could gain closure. In the end, the retrieval was not successful on that particular mission.
