I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

Fox3, I don't doubt it. The films were back in the 60s. What worried use was we had flouroscene dye markers, 2-star reds and a dinghy knife. If you needed a sleeping bag, rifle and axe we were rather under-equipped floating around Labrador at 500 feet -25 C or more.

For a bailout the order was Radar, AEO, Plotter, Copilot, Captain. The drill was for the plotter to stay put and the others to walk in. The plan was to fly with more survival gear than the others in the crew and to set off in the other direction
