    how long are they going to last in the display? Compared to the man hours put in to prepare and set up?

    And manufacture!
  5. We have a ukfr tour of the site setup, including the 30m tower on the morning of the show. Last year's theme was Disney, unfortunately I'm not privy to this year's theme. I will miss the show itself as I'll be 4km down the road at St Mary's Qrendi. If I had one wish, it would be that seven absolutely huge shows were not on the same night, totally spoilt for choice.
    Ps, don't be to gutted you miss this @argentc, I'm sure we will be suitably entertained ;);)

    What I love about this shot - apart from the composition of course;) - is the feed bag at the back on the right. Integral to pyro manufacture in Malta, where nothing goes to waste.

    Three weeks to go ...

    Looks like they are building a crane :). Will they fix stuff on after the tower is completed? It looks a little "light" at the moment...

    I'm not sure why he's not smiling, maybe nerves. You wouldn't believe how friendly this guy is, and he's got the most infectious giggle possible.
  15. All the shells, apart from the ones behind Martin and Myself are for the 15th Colin
