Tomorrow is a mystery.
But today is a gift.
That's why it's called the present.

Has the length of the cable something to do with stability?
Comparing it to the length of the Hueys cable it is very long?
Have they tested the capability of the Blackhawk's firefighting yet?
Will the lenght not be an issue in certian cenarios?

Does anyone have an ID of this Tomahawk parked at FANS? It's not going anywhere soon!
