What happens when an aircraft warning light does out on a broadcasting tower? FAA and FCC regulations mandate that it must be replaced as soon as possible.
KDLT-TV, the NBC affiliate in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, recently lost the warning light at the very top of its tower, which stands 1500' above the surrounding terrain. The replacement job fell to a climber named Kevin Schmidt.
This video, shot by a drone from Prairie Aerial Photography, records his climb to the top. Kudos to Mr. Schmidt, and to Joseph and Todd Thoren of Prairie Aerial, who put the video together.
