03/03/13 88 W - + 5 - 3 Sky-5 in Action - Video From 1982

From a reader, here's a nifty fifteen-minute short feature about WRAL's news helicopter Sky 5. Of particular interest are the first few minutes, which include footage of the Watson's fire on April 30, 1982. As this prior blog posting noted, that was the first of four major fires at the Rock Quarry Road location between 1982 and 1992. Good stuff and a good reminder to contact the station and their archivist. There's probably quite a bit of great old footage waiting to be shared. Thanks Brian!
