Those helicopters inspect high pressure gas lines and high tension power lines...they look for problems with the lines (dead vegetation, etc. indicate problem areas) as well as unauthorized work around their facilities. I was putting storm sewer over a gas pipeline (800 psi in an 8" line!!) last summer, authorized with the proper inspectors...one of those dudes circled us for 1/2 an hour before he finally contacted the guy next to me to verify we were ok...pretty nuts.

Cool CerkMX, that's good you know something about this. Otherwise, we would let our imagination go wild, and suspect that Jack Bauer is chasing a terrorist in Chicago .

Yup, I see one by my house at least once a quarter inspecting the high tension lines.

Last time he came over I was working on one of my rifles so I sighted him in just to see what was up, and it was not jack bauer flying, but I supect he was giving air support to Jack.

LOL, hed he seenme looking at him through a rifle scope he probably woudl have panicked and run into the lines , that woudl have been bad.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

All while flying the copter, with his left hand out of the window letting off a few rounds. Yeah, Tony wouldn't have much of a chance

They will even perform repairs on the line from the chopper. Really cool thing to see.
The guy hanging out clamps onto the line to ground them and goes to work. Watching the arc going to the clamp is the coolest part.
