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.
