Helicopter on Pylon...

I spotted this helicopter sitting on top of a nearby electricity pylon recently. I'd never seen a helicopter being used to do electrical work in this manner before, and with the man strapped in a chair outside of the helicopter it looks like something out of a James Bond movie! Apparently the idea is that because the helicopter is not grounded, they are able to work on the live wires without being shocked and without the need for the electricity to be shut off. Rather him than me!

 Sitting atop the pylon nearby.
Heading off once the work was completed. Note the man sitting on the landing gear.
