Another day at work as a tower light changer can mean 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 light bulb 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 when the job is done.
The video was filmed by Prairie Aerial, a communications tower company that began filming their skyward climbs with drones.
Find more light bulbs and lots of high heights, including:

• The view from the top of Sutro Tower
• An 11-year-old rock climbing prodigy
• A waltz on the walls of Oakland’s City Hall
• FPV drone diving from the top of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa
• Changing shifts over tumultuous seas at le Phare de Kéréon.
