Re: Crew memo for helo evacuation

I was lifted out of a heavily forested very steep, rugged terrain in a litter. What I didn't expect was the litter spinning around very fast, kind of dis-orienting and a bit scary. It might help to advise the injured person that the litter may spin a bit. However as they are strapped in they are not going anywhere, but it may ease the apprehension somewhat.
