Damn that's unreal. Very cool. My Dad was involved in a lot if power lines in NE.  He said they always hired Indians (feather not dot) to run the wires. Said they were better at the heights. Dunno if thats still the case.

My dad was a union iron worker and spent years climbing 300+ feet in the air without a net (pre osha hard case days). And they also had Indians that were great climbers so there is something to it.

Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel.

I have heard that story once before, and it's still amazing. my favorite part though is that the mechanics on their way to fix the plane ran out of gas on the hwy.  :facepalm:
