Plane Crashes into Texas Station's Transmitter, Knocks Them Off the Air

KCBD in Lubbock, Texas was off the air after a small plane crashed into their antenna on Wednesday.  

The station was knocked off the air and the studio was evacuated after the crash. Engineers said that the rest of the tower left standing only had one guy wire left and the tower could fall at anytime. 

"It is unsafe to stay in the building," said Steve Holland, a spokesman for the Lubbock Fire and Rescue Department.

The station aired their 10 p.m. Wednesday newscast from an alternate location.

They used sister station WSFA's (Montgomery) live stream to air their newscast.

The pilot of the plane died in the crash.
