    "Shots of Himalayan mountains covered with sno, as seen from a helicopter. A helicopter passes through a twenty foot wide gap between a rocky spire and the Himalayan giant of Ali Ratni Tibba, at 20, 000 feet altitude, leaving a gap of just a foot or two on both sides, with winds of 50 miles an hour gusting up to it! Madness or adrenaline pumping joy? Either way, Hanseuli Barfuss of Helibernina gives a wicked grin after...!
