When I was a kid, I used to watch Sea King helicopters from RNAS Culdrose practicing cliff rescues. There was a ledge on a nearby cliff where they’d set down, then take off again. The ledge was barely big enough for the aircraft, and there was a slight overhang higher up, so they couldn’t just descend vertically. I don’t think I fully understood at the time what a virtuoso display of airmanship I was watching.
