Changing a Light Bulb in the Sky

Friday August 03, 2018 Written by Kane

Jokes aside, how many people does it take to change a light bulb? Of course it's just one, but what if that light bulb is at the top of a 457 metre-high television broadcast antenna in the middle of the South Dakota plains? It's still one, but if you've got someone with a quadcopter handy it also makes for two minutes of thrilling, surprisingly lyrical video. A touch of Terrence Malick watching a man get high on the job.
