OK the first four men carry the rig, the rest of you stay in order and keep those lines straight.
This thing has only ever been deployed with an AAD so to do it manualy, requires a little skill.
We only practiced it once as it took 3 days to re-pack it with instruction over the phone from (Rex Bag Crammer Klowinski) in the USA. Also known as (The Stork) funny fella ???????
Anyway as we approached the aircaraft its engines suddenly shut down, and the pilot came storming across to us ranting "oh no, OH NO, this has gone too far"
I explained to him I still had the negatives...... he mumbled something about it not being his mule.
"Drag it through the cargo door you idiot, hell this is a large rig".

3, 2, 1 DIVE
Hells teeth its like we
are being sucked out, heared the fifth man shout "WHY!!!!!" as he

Like ants on a brolly we drifted off into the sunset...........

The Americans had devised an ingenious solution.
