    Right above our heads it took the grounding guy a minute too hook up but it was his first time and he didn't want to get shocked so he was a little scared but once he hooked the other 2guys hooked up and the bird was on it's way. We broke (3)100,000$ howitzers trying that haha that was 1of 4 successful attempts

    As the rotors from the helicopter spin in the air it creates static electricity. Similar to dragging your feet across carpet, just a million times stronger lol so the grounding guy has to hook the middle hook to discharge all the static into the ground if someone touches it before (I made that mistake) your gonna go on a quick flight thru the air and about 30 feet later you'll touch down. Its a hell of a shock. Hurts pretty good. But you live just scary.
