Perhaps some black marlow tied around the wing and attachment point, couple of crabs and this harness did the job.

'Good effort' to those involved, very sorry read that it didnt end as it should have done.

SASLESS, I think that the book Snake Pilot has an account of a cobra or loach crew being picked up under fire by a Cobra, they clung to the skids as it extracted them.....Or was it in Low Level Hell?
Excellent books.
