    PLacing the new Pirates Mast on Tom Sawyer Island by Helicopter

    They placed a new Pirates Mast on the Left Side of the Fantasmic! stage this morning.

    The Helicopter showed up back stage right on time at 7 AM and picked up the mast and took it to the island....

    Photos at the link.

    Nice work with the photos, as usual.

    Is there a reason they couldn't just bring that thing in through the front door?
    That was wonderful! Bravo! I loved that! Ah, that was great! Well, it was pretty good. Well, it wasn't bad. Uh, there were parts of it that weren't very good though. It could have been a lot better. I didn't really like it. It was pretty terrible. It was bad. It was awful! It was terrible! Take 'em away! Boo! Boo!

    Great pictures as always Darkbeer! NapoleonD: I would think just the hassle of getting a crane to lift it into place, transporting it across the river etc. Maybe it was just easier and less expensive to use a helicopter to move it into place?

    By the way, there are a lot more photos in this album coming... since I upload 9 MB photos and use a cable modem, it does take awhile, but I will let you know when they are finished.

    Whoah, very cool and interesting helicopter shots Darkbeer! That is so neat being able to see all the action without getting to be there myself. Thanks so much for sharing, as I appreciate being able to see cool stuff like this happen.
