Mr. Christianson recalls : " the site seen through the window ; almost 11.700 foot on the altimeter ; engine RPM is maxed out ; 53 knots on airspeed indicator ; so basicly full power".
"Site 22 was south of Dodola about 10-15 miles. We had make-shift oxygen systems in the back of the H-43 and when we climbed through 10,000 feet, we had to put on our oxygen masks for the period of time above 10,000 ".
