Still impressed the R44 raven 1 could lift those 5 guys and climb out rather well, I can imagine that cold air (snow) and likely low altitude helped. I don`t see that happening on a hot muggy day.

Could any of the perpetrator do the math before they started that plan, They were captured 50Km away, did the aircraft bring them as is that far.

Armed baddie in the cockpit = no MP limits.

Perhaps, but NR is oblivious to the threats.

Gun to head, no NR limit. Could operate at 110%, WOT, if needed. That's tons of extra power, literally.

In the movies, prison guards always carry guns. Is that not true in real life?

I don't know about provincial jails in Quebec. But I sure saw a guard at a Federal institution in Saskatchewan with a Diemaco C7 (an improved M16) pointing it into the exercise yard.

Was that as you were landing or as you were lifting with the prisoners on board? :-)
