Helicopters will be Checking Power Lines

Jersey Central Power & Light will have helicopters checking its transmission lines. Chesapeake Bay Helicopters will perform the inspections beginning May 15th; the work typically requires about 2 weeks to complete, depending on the weather.

The helicopters will fly slowly, 20-30 mph, along the lines, and may hover at any time for a closer inspection. The helicopters are a black Hughes MD500 with registration (tail) number N748CB and a black and silver Hughes MD500 with registration (tail) number N90TJ.
