The aircraft is an OH-58 Kiowa, not HO.... And does federal law prevent a helicopter from landing for rescue purposes?

Who gives a sh*t if it's OH or HO, and where in the hell did you read that it landed anywhere for a rescue, it said it spotted him then rescuers would be hiking in later to get him.

If they spotted him Thursday afternoon why haven't we heard yet whether or not he is out of the wilderness. It's Friday evening. This is news. Tell us what's going on.
