from the article:
"Earlier this year, a pilot was paid by the wife of a lost climber to conduct a rescue at between 7,500 and 7,700 metres, after the man's insurance company refused to send a helicopter"

wouldn't that attract a sort of bounty hunter business? is there really a second market of outfits that will go beyond the limits for money?

....gave up her own oxygen supply to the patient (at above 4000 metres ASL).....

Lets hope she actually gave it up at 3657m in the descent and landed 29 minutes later ?

its a forum for people interested or involved in helicopters. I found it interesting, just like most probably would. Quite unique really considering the culture or are we restricted to read the same old whinges about wages and people looking for flight manuals in PDF?
