KXJB-Tower - the giant, which collapsed twice

KXJB-TV mast situated at Galesburg, North Dakota is with a height of 628 metres the second tallest construction in the world (and the third tallest ever built). KXJB-TV mast was first built in 1966. Since then, it collapsed twice!
First on February 14th, 1968 after a helicopter collision and then on April 6th, 1997, because of icing.
