Done leaning out and guiding himself. Why do we bother with expensive crewmen?!

Awesome skills, well done that man. I would love to be that good one day.

I particularly like the fact that he wore his "I'm just popping down the shops" uniform.

Nice one!

some nice flying but actually a pole like that is one of the easier things to fly on a longline. Mind you still very very good with what looks like a 200 ft line on

Yes the first thing I saw, the guy in the pole must be like the turtle head
he would not be much resistance to the pole swinging at the mating point.


the guy flying is Justin Mattia, if I understand well, you will see him again in this video:

he seems to have some fun at the 10 min point coming back

Justin Mattia is one of the very best I have seen and I taught this for years in Canada and a bit in France circa 1992/3.

Two things stick out:

(1) He is a looooong way up - on top of a 150' or 200" line to which is attached a long pole section which he then places on top of another pole section all of which sits on top of a tall building. This vertical distance from the set with no surrounding cues makes the job much more difficult than say, placing an air conditioner on top of a flat-topped building.

(2) More importantly, from the inside pictures watch his cyclic hand. Very few pilots get so good that they don't "stir the stick" at least to some degree in this situation. This steadiness can also be seen from the outside pictures by watching the rotor disc.

Top notch flying, sir!

OK

No shoulder harness.

I wonder why elfin safety don't say he can't do the job.

Shoulder harness stops you from looking outside sometimes. I never wear it slinging with a long or short line.

airpolice, you mention H&S!!! Have you ever been in a Robinson?
What did you notice about the restraint system?

I'm sure there'll be something similar for particular operations elsewhere.

Very impressive!

How did those guys in the tower keep from getting zapped by the static electricity from the helo?

In the second section you saw them "ground" the tower with a Shepard's crook. Didn't see it on the first one.
