Landing zone

BATU HIJAU MINING PROJECT, Indonesia -- At the time, no roads led into the jungle from Maluk. The only transportation was by foot, or by helicopter. Seemingly all life revolved around the helicopter schedule (well, it did for the mining operation, even food and water supplies had to be flown in). The landing zones were hacked out of the forest leaving little room for error.
