    Interesting shot. Can't help but wonder what the outcome of his "repair" might have been. :biggrin-93:

    He was the lowest bidder on the job. Plus he works for scraps.

    Based on the fact that it's un-shielded wire running down the pole, it's probably safe to assume that it's a grounding line.

    So what happens if a "foot" and a wing tip touch the wire at the same time? My university physics is a bit rusty on the outcome. :biggrin-93: :biggrinangelA:
