Black Hawk insertion

UH-60 Black Hawk Helicopters land to drop off the six-man team of climbers from the U.S. Army Alaska Northern Warfare Training Center onto the Kahiltna Glacier at the start of their expected 14 to 20 day climb. The climbing team quickly offloads the aircraft and covers down onto their gear as the pilot will take off from there as soon as they are in position.
