Its a harrowing 3 hour climb with only a safety harness and 8 inch steel pegs to grab hold to as he scales the very tip top of the tower to replace the FAA mandated beacon strobe light. We get a literal bird’s eye view through Nick’s helmet mounted camera.
To put that into perspective, this tower is taller than the Eiffel Tower (1063 ft), the Empire State Building (1453 ft), and the Sears Tower (1730 ft).
Perhaps someday in the distant future, these lights may be fitted for drone assisted replacement bulbs. Until then, its guys like Nick who keep the tower lights on while we watch our free OTA from the comfort of our living room.
