    Very interesting. I remember when you posted about this earlier, too bad nobody was interested in running it. Thanks for making it available to us! The German history was interesting, I think I've seen pictures of that helicopter but never really read much about it.

    Two little notes: the footnote numbers are a bit strange to read, at least on a phone. Maybe on a computer they show up as subscripts?
    And there's a where just under the heliswiss picture that should be a were

    I thought the first page of the site said there wasn't interest, but I don't mind being wrong

    Cool idea. I'm afraid that many of the pictures cover text when I click on the link. Could be that my computer sucks. Also the foot note numbers are the same size and font as the text they precede (with no space in between). Kind of odd.

    Wasn't calling you out

    Seems retail print media didn't run the story, but industry media did (in Canada).

    No worries....

    Yes, the Canadian Avalanche Journal did run a shortened version of my main article. My website is to make sure ALL my research is published. I have the feeling the mainstream skiing media will dismiss what I have found. Oh well....

    Hi,
    Cool website. Initially the text loaded over the pictures and the navigation didn't switch to the next page/topic, but a refresh fixed it, then navigation back and forth worked fine.

    Nice job! Good stuff! The avi ride down the hill in the copter must have been a trip. Whoa!

    It would be cool to have a little time line graph. If it was 'clickable' to bounce around to different era's and articles that would be a bonus.

    Hummm, that's an interesting idea. I'll have to ask my web goddess if we can do that one.
