I thought this would be a good opportunity to put my telephoto lens to good use and was soon rewarded by a scene straight out of Only Fools and Horses - the one where they took down the wrong chandelier. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFuYIi5-igc The Flying Squad consisted of Brian and Kev 1 (blue and orange helmets) and the sky lift driver, also Kev 2 (white helmet). He, coincidentally had been the sky pilot when they were doing the Restoration Man filming.
The first job they had to do was to remove the plastic cylinder / cover at the top of the mast. The plan was for orange helmet Kev 1 to undo the bolts at the very top whilst blue helmet Brian kept hold of the cylinder. That was the plan only blue helmet Brian forget his vital role and the cylinder crashed to the ground. White helmet Kev 2 had the experience of such events to shout "Below!!" to the workers on the ground who rapidly complied.
My telephoto lens caught the moment perfectly. The look on orange helmet Kev1's face speaks volumes:
Definitely click and enlarge this one to see the look on the boss's face
All was forgiven eventually and the trio had time to give me the thumbs up:
Here is what's inside the mast-top cover when the aerials have been removed:
