Slept good. Waited for the crane and surprise, at 0845 a tank retiever showed up. It worked great to lift our bird by the Jesus nut. They picked it up, the Bell tech rep took a peek at the skid saddles to make sure they weren't cracked and one hour later we were sitting on new skids. We flew out to the Forward Area Arming and Refuel Point (FAARP) Lonesome Dove to check in and then headed back to base for some Cobra and Huey parts. Once we got back to Tanajib the weather had kept going to crap and they cancelled our return flight.
