Yes it did,It just came out in a strange colour.What I thought weired was that the choper didn't intend to pick them up in the first place yet they did in the end.120/odd miles to Nuemea(sp?) and they were gonna let someone else pick em up,even though they had the means to do so.I'm glad they survived but it could have been a different story if they had have had a radio
.The first thing they would have heard might have been"There is a boat on route
to assist."And good on the pilot as he might have been going over his aurthority to execute the rescue
attempt.This is an old story by the way,alls well that ends well.Mudnut.
