Immediately following the infamous Sky11 footage of the tornado over Fridley and Brooklyn Park on July 18, 1986, KARE-TV received tons of phone calls requesting the station to replay the footage. The footage was heavily replayed on the 6pm and 10pm newscasts the day of the event, during the weekend, KARE put together this montage of both the helicopter footage and some amateur footage shot and provided to KARE. In one scene the amateur videographer catches KARE’s helicopter circling the tornado. The montage is eerily yet appropriately set to the song “As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls.”Credit: Tom Gavaras
