Yeah those cables are at 400-500 kV 3 phase and the part where they clip them selves to the wires is so that the chopper is earthed I believe at least thats what my head tutor at college said, if they didnt clip them selves to it it could arc if the chopper clips the wire with is skid.

those pilots are bloody good XD

500 kV switching, quite cool.

You guys just failed so very hard. Seriously, can't you feel the fail hurting your face?

Those are high voltage power lines. They carry a *massive* electrical current. You did see the bright blue sparks that arced between the tip of the rod carried by one of the men and the lines, yes?

Now, those guys are airborne. That means the current from the cables has no way of earthing; it can't pass through them.

If you go up there on a ladder, the moment they touch the power lines they're going to get toasted - the current is able to reach earth through the guys, through their ladder and vroosh, big tim the human toast is your result.

So, yes, ladders would be much more effective, so long as your intended result was dead workers and a damaged power supply - or, so long as you were willing to shut the lines down whilst they were worked on. Which isn't efficient at all...
