This should have been the first pic, missed posting it. I like it when they first start to lean, looks so surreal.

Theres nothing like a good old chimney demolition to spark a lot of interest in Steeplejacking..... as the saying goes "theres no such thing as bad publicity" Great show Tom well  done to all the team everyone I`ve spoken to loved it, especially the drama of the band springing loose. Hollywood could not have contrived that incident any better, not to say it was contrived by any means.....great stuff..

It was a near do. That band is 4" wide and 1/2" thick. Hard hat wouldn't have stopped it!

Good video Tom. Another old servant gone.

Have a word with your boss and tell him it might be a good idea to contact Robert at Masson. He has no regular steeplejack and some trees growing on the stack. I was talking to him last week and pointed out he needed a bit of forestry work! You can find an email address on the Masson Mill website.  Click this LINK.

This is a wonderful video Tom, glad that you have downloaded it on this very appropriate site. I saw the "premier" at the Barnoldswick rainhall cinema, it really was dramatic on the large screen with surround sound. The slow motion bit was something else, I`ve never heard the death rattle of a Mill chimney before.
The only thing missing was a "Cameo" appearance of yourself, where were you hiding ?

P.S. This video is best watche by clicking on to the Youtube option, and viewing in full screen mode.

The thing that struck me was the way the top third kicked forward as it hit the ground. You can see the acceleration clearly in the slow-mo section. Peter always said that this was unpredictable but could be quite significant. I suspect that the number of bands has an influence, they hold the stack together and stop energy being soaked up by telescoping as the stack falls. Best example I ever saw was Dee Mill, brick with no bands and it almost looked as though it was walking across the site.



Dee chimney, still trying to stay upright to the end.
