Fark linked up this press release that claims a new helicopter altitude record set in a rather spectacular fashion:

On May 14th, 2005 at 7h08 (local time), a serial Ecureuil/AStar AS 350 B3 piloted by the Eurocopter X-test pilot Didier Delsalle, landed at 8,850 meters (29,035ft) on the top of the Mount Everest (Kingdom of Nepal).

Maybe they'll finally be able to get all the bodies and trash off the mountain now.
