Yep. I'd be happy with that. A good day (for me) is when the same number of wheel chairs are required to get 'em off, as wot got 'em on in the first place.

I started watching that, and immediately didn't like the look of it, so carried on watching.

Helo, plus cables, plus tall stuff. Couldn't see it ending simply and cheaply. Helicopters are like witches magic to me, as it is.
It's a miracle that flying debris didn't catch the spectators!

Tell me about it. I've spent a bit of time in recent years in Bangladesh and the region. Talk about running before learning to walk!
Incidentally, The most popular car brand there seems to be Toyota, and looking at the cars, I'd say toyota were having brake issues for much longer than they were letting on!

its just the way people are dumb enough to try any manouvers in those sort of conditions that worries me. I'd hate to be taxi'd around by a local.
