Helicopter Highlights

Did a little tree trimming yesterday.  Skeptical?  Oh yeah,
I was only taking photos.  It was kinda cool though.  My 
husband called me after he left our house at lunch and
told me to get my camera and drive down our road and
I would see a helicopter doing something.  He said it
might be a good picture.  
He's leaning out a little too far for me!  Here's my puny 
attempt at a video.  There are a lot of blades hanging from
this pole.  He is trimming the trees for the power company.

That's pretty cool that they trim trees from above like that! Is that the pilot leaning out? If so, I sure wouldn't want to be a passenger in that helicopter!

Junebug said...

Yes, that's the pilot. I think he was alone in the helicopter.

Wow, here they just use a huge crane but I think the helicopter is pretty cool!

That's so cool! What a crazy thing to see. I would have probably freaked out a bit before I really knew what was going on!

Yeah there is something about whirling blades swinging around on a cable that might freak me out. Interesting way of trimming. I haven't heard of that before.
