The Kid Should See This

Changing a light bulb at the top of a 1500 foot TV tower

Another day at work: climbing 1500 feet (457 meters) high over the South Dakota plains while being filmed by a quadcopter. Tower climber Kevin Schmidt shows us what it takes to change a lightbulb on the top of a television broadcast antenna so that airplane pilots can see (and avoid) it. Watch as he hooks onto the bars with his safety line over and over again as he climbs, and then takes a selfie at the very top after the job is done.
