I know that some of you lift freaks will like this. This is part of a video I shot during the HSDQ installation on North Peak at Loon. The top of tower #5 is being airlifted by helicopter.

Enjoy!

I'm not a lift freak but I am an aviation buff and that helo driver demonstrated phenomenal airmanship holding that assembly spot-on while it was lowered.

I'd be very interested to know their wind tolerances for operations like that.

Hopefully by the end of the week I will upload other parts of the video. It blows my mind as well at how accurate that pilot brings in the chopper with cargo suspended sixty or so feet below and lands it right on target. When the towers are landed on their foundations is pretty impressive as well!

It would be interesting to find out what the wind limitation is to do this type of operation.

But also, if you have been watching the news on the wildfires in California, I am pretty I saw this chopper out there assisting in fighting the fires.
