I really loved the end, when he talked about his fears :D
Brave is not the absence of fear, but the capacity to carry in it's presence!

I would like to do this but only once. Those guys are full of energy... half million volts are something. If he could carry a bulb in his hand that would light on? :D

#7 He said there is such a high demand for electricity that nobody wants to take down a powerline to maintain it. So what he is doing is maintaining it, checking for problems and defects.

My husband use to do this. The answer to questions as best as I can answer is.....#7 is changing spacers. It's to keep the 4 cable from touching each other. sometime the spacers will break and have to be changed. answer to #11 is not take down the power-Line but to take down (out) power from the line. If they did that thousand or millions of people would be out of power (these lines supply power to the small distribution lines, then they supply power to small line that feed into your homes). These guys have a very skilled job and the pilot has to be VERY good also, kudos to them! for making life safe. ;)

I remember seeing this before somewhere, one of the most dangerous parts of is the landing.... they need to safely ground/earth the chopper before it can land!

I used to paint electical towers. 3 rules we used to stay alive. 1. Know where you are every second. 2. Know where you are going before you make a move. and the best one 3. Never take anything for granted. Oh, and I wonder if the guys great voice was allways like that, or did the voltage do it... Just kidding.
