Can't quite make it out in the picture but are his lines and the power lines in parallel?

Poor bugger probably thought he was going to die as he watched the powerlines get closer and closer.
Then imagine what he must have been thinking as he was hanging there.
"Don't. Move. An. Inch."
No - probably more like "Shite - now I'm going to have to put up with pages and pages of dreadful puns on PPRuNe..."

I for one have found the puns generated here to be most illuminating.

Perhaps someone will send him a link - I'm sure he'll be ec-static.

Lighten up, we do not want a re-volt in here or sparks might fly.

Sorry, no pun this time.
The owners of the damaged house have been allowed to come back twice, under military surveillance.
Bits and pieces of the aircraft have been picked up, trees and soiled material and soil will be removed, then the house will be decontaminated and rebuilt.
Expected to take 5-6 months.
