    Cool. We used to have problems with the old externals on the H-60. They were pressurized and in cold temps, the vent line would freeze over and it wouldn’t transfer. Only a 400 lb difference is considered asymmetric so you had better land and thaw it. New tanks use electric pumps in the tank so it’s not an issue. Crashworthy now as well...which is nice.
