Jimbo, nip over to those State Department CH46's and see if you can swap the back end for one of theirs.

Apparently the pilot was distracted on approach by the sight of Section Officer Harvey sunbathing naked on the roof of the WRAF quarters.

Pilot reported a bit of a thump on touchdown. Tell him we've had a good look, and couldn't find anything.
