Default Re: question about floatplane/helecopter and weight limit

As I said, they weighed us in front of all but.....

I think the original design for the helicopters was to hold 4 or 5 but Temsco figured out how to squeeze 7 of us (pilot included) into the thing. Four in the back,,3 in front. I was third into the back and by the time the first two guys got in there was no room for me and the poor young lady that was to climb in behind me! We shoved to get those two over so myself and the poor woman could climb in,,,we,were pinned in,,we couldn't even use our cameras from the air because our arms wouldn't move. IF we'd gone down in the water we would have sunk like a stone.
