A lot of small towns here are putting up the extra tall wind turbines, since they only put up one I would think it would be about the same obstacle. At least they sure kill a lot of eagles and bats. Sheboygan is larger, I guess it depends on how close to the airport it is. I would imagine they took that into the permit. Now who is gonna be the first to land a drone on top or get too close to the flag and get a slap may happen. Sorta like a fly swatter at work.
You're right, of course, Mike: the flagpole is no worse than a large wind turbine (and those things tend to show up by the dozens). But that's bad enough and Sheboygan has a fair-sized, well-utilized airport.
I guess I'm sensitized to the issue by having a thousand-foot tower three miles from my home field, KEIK.
