“The guy caught the cable, attached it to the antenna, and then a few minutes later the helicopter lifted the antenna off”


9th and Peabody Street, NW

Jeff reports:

“We woke up on Sunday to a very loud helicopter, which looked like it landed behind the Police station on Georgia Ave. A couple hours later, it was back in the air with a cable dangling below it, and we saw a guy near the top of the Hughes Memorial Tower.

The guy caught the cable, attached it to the antenna, and then a few minutes later the helicopter lifted the antenna off of the tower and lowered it to the ground! As of this morning, the antenna is still not back in place.”
