WFXL Antenna Demolition
Videos for Engineers

Here is a case where getting two for the price of one is not a good deal. In July of 2006, a Chinook helicopter struck the 1000-foot transmission tower for television station WFXL, in Albany, GA. The tower had to come down because it posed a risk to the WALB tower standing next to it. Experts were called in. The WFXL guy wire charges went off as planned (visible in the video) and things were going well... until a wire from the collapsing antenna got tangled on the WALB tower guy wire. Well, that's one way to take care of the competition.












Demolition of the WFXL Tower... 2 for the price of 1
