With all due respect, VF, the tail rotor safety in that photo doesn't seem to be up to your usual standards. However, I think we can all understant you were probably somewhat distracted by "external" forces. Well played.

40.2 is hardly marshmallow toasting weather. In Saudi Arabia summer we had 51 degrees almost every day. Which was very unfortunate because the RFM OAT temp limit was 52 degrees. If it got to 52 we could have a rest. It never got to 52.
