Great news about the safe, precise landing -- strange news how
the recovery force seemed caught by surprise by the icing that
grounded all the helicopters.
First December landing in 19 years -- looks like more
thought on options could be helpful next time.
Had a one-day landing wave-off ever been an option?
Landing point weather looked great -- no wind, no
snow cover, temperature just a little below freezing.
So the crew was returned to Arkalyk by all-terrain vehicle -- must
have taken at least two hours of driving, or more -- did anybody
hear how long they were bouncing around inside the cabs?
When was the last time a crew couldn't be evacuated by helo?
