Video: Redskins use helicopter to dry off practice field

The Washington Redskins called in the heavy machinery Friday morning to dry off their practice field in one of the most unorthodox ways imaginable. 

Apparently, a huge batch of rain swept over Richmond, Va., the home of the Redskins' training camp, Thursday night and left the field too soggy to trample on. This is when the Redskins decided to call in a helicopter to blow dry the field.

“One of the tricks of the trade is to bring in a helicopter to come down on the 50-yard line and blow-dry the fields,” Richmond official Lon Rosenberg told The Washington Post. ”I immediately got on the phone to call the people I know in the community. Everybody wants to help the Redskins, everybody wants the camp to be successful.”

A local resident by the name of Whit Baldwin volunteered his chopper free of charge and the rest is history.
