Helicopter gives SWFL "swing set" a lift, Mount St. Helens.

Detailed Description

Monitoring stations need to be portable. Weighing about 500 pounds, this "swing set" structure can be airlifted into place or moved, as volcano monitoring needs change. An additional 1,000 pounds of equipment will need to be added to make the station fully functional.
