LORAN Station Port Clarence Demolition
This brought tears to my eyes, I just want a tower like that but it was a danger and too expensive to repair.
Alaska's tallest structure, a 1,350-foot tall radio navigation tower, has been knocked down. The Coast Guard carried out the demolition using controlled explosives. Officials say the tower was deteriorating and at risk of collapse. It was the tallest tower of its kind in the US.
