Watch 200ft wind turbine tower toppled in Torrington CT  

Credit:  ireport.cnn.com ~~

Demolition of 200ft (61m) wind turbine tower at Klug Hill Farm in Torrington CT. Optiwind was an energy startup developing a mid-sized wind turbine design. This tower is a prototype built in 2009. Financial difficulties forced Optiwind to close its doors in early 2013, leaving the tower behind. With no other suitable use for the tower, decision was made to bring it down. After removing all the support braces, the three main columns were cut with plasma torch (the last one from the passenger seat of an ATV) , and a gentle tug with a tractor did the rest. Aerial shots captured using DJI F550 hexacopter with Gimbal mounted GoPro Hero3.
