Indiana, PA - Indiana County

AERIAL MANEUVERS

Helicopter pilot Tim Lieber practiced long line maneuvers Wednesday at the Jimmy Stewart Airport.

A cloth tool bucket is attached to a 50-, 75- or 100-foot line that can then be used to lower tools to utility line workers. Lieber, who flies for Rotor Blade Airborne Vegetation Management out of South Carolina, also practiced with a 600-pound weight.



Chief Photographer Tom Peel has been photographing events in the county since 1966. He started with the Gazette while in high school and then came on board full-time in 1969. So if you do something good, bad or just interesting, he will most likely be there to take your picture. Tom can be reached at tpeel@indianagazette.net or 724-465-5555 ext. 275.
