This was posted in the rotorcraft newsgroup the other day and I thought
the folks here might enjoy taking a peek as well.

It's at the bottom of the AVweb site and from YOUTUBE it shows a clip
of how power companies use helicopters to trim trees around power line.

Enjoy.

In any event I'm sure it would be the event of the week to watch that
little darling fire up and start cutting wood.

Delurking long enough to say that I have a couple of snaps from a
disposable camera of two (highly paid) lunatics repairing insulators on
high tension lines along Highway 1 coming out of the Keys.

Both snaps were a feat for me as I was going 70 in a 55 zone, grabbed the
disposable, stuck the thing out the window, used Kentucky windage, and
didn't take my eyes off the road.

The blades of the chopper were frighteningly close to the wires, the
driver held it perfectly still in about a 15knot wind, and this other
lunatic was standing outside leaning against a tether.

Reminded me of the guys who climb the big wind turbines for routine
maintenance, talk about 1000 yard stares!

Ray, I was only able to find one of the pics. This one shows two guys on
the skid... I thought it was one guy (oh, the ravages of old-timers
disease!).

The sunlight was not reflecting as well off the top wire, which is there
(you can barely see it in this pic). I assure you the wire is there, and
this Bell was hovering just feet from immediate disaster.




crazed indeed.
