    The high voltage lines are always energized while the repair work goes on, otherwise the electric grid would black-out large parts of residential and commercial customers. Proper grounding of the helicopter and workmen is the reason they are not electrocuted. Also they use high pressure deionized water to clean the high voltage lines (some more than 220,000 volts).

    To me it looks as if it is a video run in reverse, since it appears to be a helicopter taking off from a mountainside. On the other hand, I may be a bat bickward!

    Lots of skill. Pilot would rely on instruments being perfect on that incline.

    Pilots...they know how to find Balance and have clarity of boundaries! Holy Kadoodle, barely a dip when the first guy got on nosed in and steady as a rock on the pair from the line! Most impressive and similar to the first...wonder if it was the same pilot?

    Thanks Jon...makes one pucker and well up after at their skills.

    One tiny change in the wind and we’d be looking at a different video!

    Nice flying pilot!!
