"I was working as a pilot flying a helicopter in support of the Erickson Aircrane on the Sunrise Powerlink project in Southern California," says Megna. "Some days there were more than 40 helicopters working along the 117-mile corridor, making this the largest helicopter-supported construction project ever undertaken. On this day, I had the opportunity to fly with another pilot as the Aircrane set the 12,000 to 18,000 pound tower sections. This overhead view provides a unique perspective to appreciate the air crane crew's skill and precision in working with the crews on the ground to construct each individual tower."
