 haze, the pilot could not determine the helicopter's position and

 pilot's sign said "WHERE AM I?" in large letters. People in the
 tall building quickly responded to the aircraft, drew a large
 sign, and held it in a building window.
 Their sign said "YOU ARE IN A HELICOPTER OVER SEATTLE." The pilot

 The pilot responded "I knew that had to be the MICROSOFT building
 because, similar to their help-lines, they gave me a technically
