Securing the helicopter at ANC!

Currently we are getting a pretty nasty wind storm here in Anchorage,

Our 212, (N212PA) was doing some ground runs making sure that the engines and repairs were done okay, due to the wind it lifted the helicopter up, they went into a hover mode

Here’s video of us securing the 212, you can hear the wind. Here’s the current METARs.
