Spanish helicopter rescue

Ignacio describes this scene:
"I just finished a panorama (#1 below) that I have done to show a rescue exercise with helicopter. The helicopter leave an specialist on the summit of a roc or "needle" where a climber had an accident, then he descents to help the climber and is taken with a rope. Is a very difficult excerise because the summit is really small and the specialist has to exit the helicopter with a lot of care."
1. Panorama image about 3mb Flash format. Climber to be rescued wearing white helmet is down and to right.
There are 4 people in the scene. Helicopter Pilot, Spanish Guardia Civil rescue Specialist, the climber to be rescued AND the Photographer. The real question is "Where is the photographer standing in this scene ?"

I suspect the photo was taken with a 4 meter or 12 foot pole with the camera mounted on the pole end. He probably used a remote radio controlled shutter release device (can be found at Fort Worth Camera). The technique is called "Over the Edge pole panorama'. I create this animated movie few years ago to explain the technique. Look closely at the pole end to see the rotation.
Its more fun to view the panorama IF you do not know how the scene was taken.
Here is another 'over the edge panorama' taken out the window of our hotel window. http://360texas.com/...no/edgepano.htm
