Think that Balcombe was the best time for me of that particular beast, it was soooo much nicer to stand near it when it went boom (well 20 odd foot away, but the vibrations still made us all wobble).

Still, it's a great photo of a lovely big boom maker. :D

Cheers, George

My Year 7 kids would love to see that... Better still, a video showing the detonation time lapse photography style. Just a thought... :)

Personally I think we should find some land somewhere, build a fortification of various sections from various dates, like a 16th century earthwork in one corner, a medieval wall in another, etc. Then leave it a year for the lime mortart to set somewhat.

Then come back with dozens of cannon and batter it to pieces.
We could call it experimental archeology....

And sell the film rights, and stuff.
Maybe with cameras positioned all over the place we could get lots of shots of the sort that could be used in films.

It's not imposible that someone might find that worth paying for, but I'm guessing that only an MOD range would ever have approval to shoot ball like that.

Anyway BUMP wheres the rest of those pictures?

That is one MOFO gun, a real ground shaker, excellent.

Still laugh recalling the member of public at rougha, last year who was told to expect a big bang ( ove a hundred yards away) 'yeah, right'. Kaboom, one white as a sheet mop with vertical hair, nice one Don.

Rather like MR Trust did (barring film-work as far as I'm aware)? Videos on display at Fort Nelson. Pretty d@rn impressive too!

And finally the whole sequence

Post by Wadding »

I have upload the entire sequence up to a SmugMug gallery which you can find here.

Each frame is 1/5 of a second apart.
Sorry for the delay, new baby arrived last week and I haven't had a spare weekend since the last event.
