I do not believe what my eyes saw in print here.....

Now if the Chinnie boys were unserviceable or on another job or out of crew duty or whatever...
When brave men are fighting and dying there are no "crew duty limits to be considered beyond getting into the aircraft and going to their aid and assistance!

In case you overlooked a small point of fact.....there's a war on!

The Marines and Apache folks demonstrated the concept for all to see....and admire!

Tied up on other Ops and unable to leave a routine mission for a Tactical Emergency....who is setting the priorities out there?

There may very well be a shortage of aircraft but a unit in contact with the enemy has priority over all others.
