The most dangerous part is the transition from the chopper to the lines and vice versa. They don't get electrocuted because they are not grounded. So the voltage circulates through them but there is no current flowing through them to the ground. It`s called "bonding on" in the trade. Not so shocking.

Very nice. It gives a very good perspective on how these high voltage lines are inspected without putting it out of service. Here in our country, people think nothing of shutting down lines for days on end to inspect and repair faults.
