Alaska's tallest structure has toppled to the ground in a controlled
demolition using explosives.

The 411m (1,350ft) Long Range Aids to Navigation (LORAN) tower on the Seward
Peninsula was brought crashing down.

The Coast Guard, who ordered the demolition, said the tower was
deteriorating and at risk of collapse.
