Vertigo alert... Drone captures TV technician's pants-sh*ttingly scary climb up 1500-foot tower

We got vertigo just from watching this video…

Kevin Schmidt is a TV antenna technician from South Dakota in the US and it’s his job to climb some of the world’s largest TV towers whenever they need repair.

Kevin was recently tasked with changing the giant red bulb that sits on top of the massive towers as a warning aid for pilots, so the lads at Prairie Aerial decided to follow Kevin up the tower with their trusty drone. The results look truly amazing...

Here’s what Prairie Aerial had to say on YouTube: “This is tower climber Kevin Schmidt making the climb to the very top of the now inactive KDLT TV analog broadcast antenna near Salem, SD.

“It was a beautiful fall day for a climb and the views are stunning! I would suggest watching at 1080 HD in full screen to get a small taste of the experience.”

As Prairie Aerial suggests you should really watch this one on full screen and in HD. It’s absolutely class and pretty terrifying at the same time...
