A round trip every 30 seconds by an impressively skilled pilot.
: A hat tip to reader Bucaneer for finding a companion video showing the process from the pilot's point of view (and confirming that each load is a cluster of trees, not a single tree).
I can understand the flying and the drop off, but I have ZERO idea how the heck they're getting those loads on in that time. THAT is the video I'd like to see.ReplyDelete

Thanks, bucaneer. Added to the post.Delete
This practice is called sling loading, it looks like a VERY difficult skill to master. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cargo_hook_(helicopter)ReplyDelete
I see there are lots of videos in YouTube under "sling load." Tx, violarulz.Delete
