In aviation modelling terms, it doesn't get much closer to life or death than this. To misquote the irreplaceable Dave Allen, all of us who've never had to witness such a scene can thank whichever God we pray to...

Thanks for posting it Rowan.

I built this a couple years ago for a customer. His father was a crewman on this helicopter. The diorama was inspired by the attached photo. It is hard to see, but in the lower right corner of the dio is the guy with his arms raised skyward as in the photo. This dio had special meaning to me since it was going to his dad. I am told he loved it.

Hope you like it too.
