    Anyone want to work for that company? Benefits include an impressive salary. Disadvantage though, I hear there is high turnover. :) ;) (This is not my video and my guess is if this drone pilot did not get the appropriate wavers, he is probably breaking a few laws here).

    I am not the best at heights. Just watching this gives me the worst goosebumps. Whatever that guys salary is, it isn't enough

    If that first tower is in the uSA, it might not be over a thousand feet at the most.
    As in the USA, alternating red/white sections have to be painted every 200 feet or something like that.

    I have been to 200 feet working on a radio tower, smaller in diameter even.
    Trust me, it's a lot of PITA fun to be on it all day long.
    You'll quickly find out how many muscles ache when you come down.

    Decades ago, national geographic had a photo of a guy on the sears tower in chicago changing a light bulb whilst dangling over the city. Not for me thank you.

    I actually have a buddy that does it for a living, he makes a TON of money, someone has to change the lightbulbs!!

    OMG! Had to turn it off, could not watch(I am going to have nightmares tonight). They did not even have the safety clips used by those in the other videos.
