This one almost got me as youngster. I was out on a training flight in a C-152 and impulsively dropped down into a river (just like the video). Luckily, I climbed slightly because of an upcoming bend because I didn't see the wires, that I missed by a few feet, until they went under me - talk about scary.
That cured me.

Good post Chris!
