Tower Replacement St Helena Island

In 2001 the East Tower was replaced. The guy wires were released by explosives but the bottom section failed to go off,so the top section of the tower came down on it own, landing on the tuning hut .

Precautions had been taken as all the tuning circuits had been removed in case this should happen. Damage to the hut was surprisingly small.

The lower section guy wires were then cut and this section fell as planed.
