With the Jet Rangers the co pilot/Medic, moved in back to attend to the patient, and the copilots seat folded up against the control panel so that the patients legs and feet could go there once you shoehorned them in the side door of the Helicopter.

I barely fit in an OH-58/Jet Ranger.  I cannot believe that some one made a quarter of a million dollar vehicle without adjustable seats.  If I sat up straight my head touched the roof which with all the vibrations in an OH-58 was similar to licking your finger and sticking it in a wall socket. 

Maybe I can find an excuse to get some time in a BO-105 someday to see if they live up to their reputation.

Karl- the newer medivac helicopters are much roomier and easier to load and treat patients.  As you can see they are high enough you can just about stand under the tail and the clam shell doors make for a fast load of the gurney.  Much bigger and faster than the old Jet rangers they had twenty years ago.

I have never gotten to play with a BO-105 but I hear that they are unusually smooth, fast helicopters which makes them popular for medivac.

Rituals of a supportive nature.

When one hears of the occult, mythologies, and "pagan" religion, coming from the Christianized western world, it's not a good thing that comes to mind. It is, however, that most occult persons align themselves with "White magic", and even Satanism has a Ritual of Compassion, attached below... But I've done many rituals of compassion, and in the end even if you're not a MAGIC MISSILE person, it's still very comforting to one that someone took time out of their lives, did a ritual - a set…See More

Prayers and Ideas for struggling men.

I know this isn't your typical theological question, but I feel it can be helpful. I personally need some prayer. I am struggling with guidance. I seem go be having some relationship trouble. I firmly believe God put this woman in my life to be wife one day (when funds and scheduling allow), but I keep picking fights about stupid things. I would like some prayer for guidance and how I should act. Thanks guys. I hope this thread ends up being a way for all of us guys to ask for some prayers.
