This "ground effects" phenomenon was one reason we used to enjoy doing NEOs (in case the acronym has changed from back in the day--"non-combatant evacuation operations) in spite of the usual adverse circumstances otherwise prevailing at the time. There was never a want for a courteous Marine to help a damsel in distress into the helos.

You do know the difference between a bottle of meths and a bottle of Tizer dont you?
