Watch a Drone Video Capture Replacing a Lightbulb at 1,500 Feet


Ever wonder who actually changes the lightbulbs atop towers you see? You know, the towers so massive that the landscape around it seems to shrink?

In 2014, Kevin Schmidt made his ascent up a 1,500 ft inactive TV analog broadcast antenna to change out its lightbulb. (Just because it’s defunct doesn’t mean it’s not still a hazard to aircraft.) A drone documented Schmidt’s climb in 1080 HD quality.

The movie, created by Prairie Aerial, was a selection for the New York City 2016 Drone Film Festival.
