    Any idea why that shadow or puddle or whatever it is seems to overlay their legs?

    I call shoop, though quite a good one. Falls down with shadows being odd and the blokes not being reflected. And the pixels

    once you lose the engines and gearbox a helicopter is surprisingly light. I was part of a four man crew that lifted a twin seat trainer for a weight & balance check, even without just the engine or fuel they weigh a lot less

All I was saying was that I have seen this done before, and that most people automatically cry shoop when they see something that looks impossible (improbable). There IS a shadow of of rotor blades on the ground, but, you’re right, no reflection of the troops who are supposed to be carrying this thing.
