A friend of mine showed me this a few days ago and said he's loved to do this job. I couldn't imagine crawling miles and miles on my knees no matter how good the scenery is.

that's really cool!! that helicopter pilot is better than a bumble bee!

that suit would only pass current when he uses that rod to bring the helicopter up to the same potential.

the earth is a dangerous place anyway, there's thousands of volts per km in bands around the planet. when something's touching the earth the zero potential wraps around that object no matter how tall it is.

a helicopter is at the same voltage as the e-field(voltage band) it's passing through. those linemen are changing it to be the same potential as the line.
