Look at about 50 seconds in. Cockpit shot but it looks like a carpenters clamp holing something close to the windshield. I hope it is not the windshield itself! Great video and a beautiful part of Portugal

At about 5:05 one drops on a fire line in the back yard- close support. Aside from the number of red tile roofs, the area looks much like the California Sierra foothills.

Bit worried about the G clamp on the windscreen too, great video.

Any idea why it is there?

My guess would be a make shift GoPro mount of some sort - there is a plate mounted and at 3:40 I think I can see the GoPro mounted to the plate.

At 6:14 it looks like there is a GPS unit that could be mounted on off the clamp.

that little plane must be extremely overpowered (and fun to fly) when empty, right?

Maravillosa demostración de precisión aerea. Estos jovenes merecen un saludo ferviente desde aquí FLORIDA CENTRAl usa.

And those obvious reasons would be? And your reasons for sympathy are? Seems to me that self interest and greed are the only possible reasons. If that was your home with a fire raging 3 miles away, are more more interested in a few water pistols or a fire hose> Even the US has gone upscale with re-purposed Herc, commercial jets, etc.
