Glad everything came out o'kay. The CH-47 is a large aircraft and had they not detected a spot to land, things could have turned to the worse. These people are highly trained and I have upmost respect for their ability to respond to even the smallest ananomaly. The Chinook is a fine aircraft. Rode in one in 1968. Thanks
