The rigging of an AGE load was a fine example of the art of tying nylon cord. So much to rig =so much to go wrong. The floor angle (or the lack of it) during the drop has resulted in more than one conversation between the captain and myself.
I was much happier with the heavy drop but if I understand dragartist correctly we were nearer the limits than was realised at the time. Ignorance was indeed bliss.
