Benny Baldwin with Baldwin Video Productions captured this image while flying his drone over Meekins Field behind Kill Devil Hills Fire Station 14, located along U.S. 158.

Baldwin is working with the town on a future Current TV video documenting the construction of the town’s new 400,000 gallon elevated water tank.

L.G. Barcus and Sons from Kansas City recently completed the last of 18 auger cast in place pilings recently. The pilings go over 70 feet down and will form the foundation for the new tank.

  1. Ahhh, I wondered what they were doing there. It looked like they were installing light poles for the ball field or something. Thanks for telling us what is really going on. Someone did a time lapse of the old tank being removed from next to the Nags Head police dept some 10 years ago and it was amazing to watch how fast they can take it apart. I hope they do it with this one too.
