Nice teamwork for sure. Those guys must have wanted out of there pretty bad. I would have considered walking before getting near that cuisinart. It's not the first time I've seen this from the ground, but that was the tightest fit.
That is suppose to be in the F-35. My question is - - how do I see my kneeboard if when I look down I'm looking through the bottom of the aircraft!

I'm pretty sure that the Helo pilot with some fancy vision system is still not going to be looking back over his shoulder clearing the landing area while concentrating on the stick work up front.
