I heard of a Sikorsky pilot who used the CH-53E as a leaf-blower. Needless to say he blew all of the soot out of his chimney and into his living room.

Here'a 205 creating ice fog at -40C when he pulls pitch.

Super 205, Super Vortex!!!
I was Lifting 8 drums of diesel at -40C. Needless to say the ground crew weren't happy as the windchill was around -62C. (We had 300 drums to move 15 miles)
I lost sight of the drums soon after they were airborne but could still see out the top 3rd of the windshield. I just pointed it towards the sun to see

A bad case of Dynamic rollover would have given this guy a super new hair cut!!

The mentality of some people never ceases to amaze me!!

I know in commercial flying that time is money but is it really worth the risk?

Real strange this life wire repairs! Altough i know such procedures are not so seldom, i couldn't acclimate myself on such views.
Trying not to think on possible problems.
One positive factor on such jobs: Needless to meet concerns about mobile phone radiation! But maybe after the mission the smart card or the memory of my phone is deleted? Must be the hell of a electric flow field. Carcinogenic???
The sparks during connecting are absolute horrible. Must be interesting to measure the generator peak.

Hats down to the crew! Some guys have really to work hard for their money!!!

Well this should keep you ticking.

It's funny that the guy says that he is only afraid of three things in life.... check out the video to find out.

Cool stuff
