i think the reason why they dont have a parachute is 1. it would make it harder to squeeze through those small places. and 2. it would add a lot of extra weight.

Being on a flight deck on the USS John C Stennis was scary enough for me. Screw that height stuff.

Yeah I agree with vapiper; if I had a parachute on my back, getting down would be a breeze literally.

I've met the guys that do this work when we've had radio work done at the FD on our tower. They're all insane. I get sick to my stomach watching it on the video. I'd probably die of a heart attack trying to do it for real.

Installing one antenna on a 180ft tower cost us nearly $10,000.
