Musings about life through the eyes of an old helicopter pilot.
I saw one of those crews working on one of those half million volt lines on my way to a call up in Anderson this summer. Just amazed me even though I have seen this on tv several times. Bet those guys get a nice paycheck for this kind of gig and they deserve it.
National Geographic has a show called "World's Toughest Fixes". One episode covered high voltage power lines.See the videos at http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/series/worlds-toughest-fixes/all/Videos/05837_00 and http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/series/worlds-toughest-fixes/all/Videos/05926_00 and a behind the scenes montage at http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/series/worlds-toughest-fixes/all/Videos/05957_00
Ya know... there's crazy and then there's crazy....cjh
