Tested 205 all day. Rigged engines, track and balance main rotor. Then had to fly it 5 hours, a penalty due to overtorque, then have maintenance checks it over again before we could run off. 5 hours, plus 3 hours ground turning, working towards a 14 hour day on the flight line, and we ran out of day to fly out. Weather was still crap, so we spent the night in Tanjib.
