Since when do you use a helicopter instead of a crane in building construction? When you have a building with an 11-acre-wide roof, that's when. In 74 minutes flat, this helicopter delivers 28 new air conditioning and exhaust units to the top of the 439,000-square-foot manufacturing and logistics facility that Viega North America Inc. is building in McPherson, Kan.
