    I’ve watched the guys checking the powerlines from helicopter. First of all, flying a helicopter 2 feet from high tension lines is insane, but its not as insane as the guy walking from the struts to the tower and back.
    Also, a helicopter hovering at 100ft is VERY VERY LOUD.

      What?? Can’t hear ya!! (Sorry, you just tee’d it perfectly…… 10 years on a medevac will do it to ya)

    • snuffy says:

      Yep, I saw that one time. Guy was wearing a chainmail bodysuit, he climbed out of the helo onto the tower, helo left, guy took care of bidness for about 20 minutes or so, helo came back, he climbed on, next tower. Not enough money in the world to get me to try that.

    Has that tree been spiked?

    I forget–what we do for entertainment before watching stupid people do stupid shit on camera?

    What caused that car to blow up at the crosswalk?

    • Wirecutter says:

      My first thought was the front U joint failed and caused the drive shaft to fall and ‘pole vaulted’ the car, but I’m pretty sure that vehicle is front wheel drive, so I really don’t know.

      • GEBIV says:

        Saw that one on another web site, and the consensus thought was that the car drove into a manhole. It looks like you can see the cover come out from under the car as everything happens.

    • wes says:

      looks to me like the manhole cover wasn’t in place properly and the front tire of the car dropped in the hole. If you watch close I’m pretty sure you can see a manhole cover rolling on edge out the right side of the frame towards the telephone pole

    Boy, that little girl sure wasn’t going to let go of that leash, was she? Cute.

    Part of Navy shipboard firefighting training used to be that you had to tackle a “wild” hose. Those things will beat the living shit out of you (ask me how I know–CV 67, CV 59).

    That gal with the Beer the foamed over sure wasn’t that surprised…. I wonder why?

    FYI Kenny…I’ve noticed since you’ve starting posting these….there’s a hell of a lag and a big delay until they all come through smoothly….FWIW…Keep up the good work Bud…

    • Wirecutter says:

      They load fine on my computer. I don’t preview most posts, but I do with the gifs to make sure they’re sized right and work correctly. If I see any that aren’t or have a big lag time, I delete them out before you ever see them.

    I got a major rush just looking out the window at the top of WTC.
    The rest of NYC sucked.

    I took care of some Hughes Choppers like that, we would take Electricians on top of Towers to Change the Warning Lights.. “Hover out of Ground Effect” takes More Power than Any other kind of Flying, the Turbine Temperatures were Deliberately Run to the Top of the Yellow Line for 15+ Minutes. The Engine Shops like this when it comes Time for Hot Section Overhauls…

    I’m loving the gifs.

    Thanks.
