Yep. I believe mid span anything takes the most concentration and actual ability. Iíve done thousands of marker balls usually over land but a span at 1000 feet above a canyon was hardest. Bird diverters are actually worse with typically 30-50 per span.

Man that indeed must be hard. What with 20 emergency people already there and the landing lite up by trucks and ambulances. Getting on the ground with only 6 people watching from inside and outside the helicopter. Stones youíve got!!

transitioning to/from the void of night hand flying single pilot to land and take off from a ship under way.

That was for me but I've never done a 1000ft mid span over a canyon which I can imagine takes a lot of skill and concentration.

Hardest one is realizing what you think you know, that you don't know, and happen to be in line to suffer the consequences.  Skills are one thing, but judgement is the key.  To develop judgement one first needs to recognize the need, then identify a path to constantly gain and refine it.  Definitely the key staying alive.
