    Here's why to use the epithet "best" ??? Have they held a contest there in the district ???

    Take away this word and the news will immediately be transformed!

        Our sister Mi-8 MTVs regularly fly over the pass at 5350 with a cargo of about a ton.
        No longer allowed. We landed from MTV-shki on a fairly flat but unprepared site, at 5050. We + cargo about 900 kg.
