Cool
If you've ever rescued an airplane from a treetop, you'll appreciate this

From climbing trees, using extension poles to knock your plane out and even calling in the local tree service with a cherry-picker crane, nothing tops this save:

Helicopter Fishing (4 min 53 sec)


Wow!!!

What I don't get is why the downwash from the heli didn't just blow it out of the tree. They push a LOT of air.

I guess I am one of the conservative ones... I find it very risky that the pilot did that. It is not worth jeopardizing the helicopter, pilot or passenger over a model...

I'll bet he's a Nam Helo guy. I knew one at Eglin that flew like that and talked like that. He had survived amazing stuff and was the best helo pilot I ever met.
