Saw a big flock last week on the South Bank :D

There appear to be an awful lot crammed into one place; surprised there have not been any issues with this particularly in high wind scenarios. Good pic anyway. :thumbup:

That's a great pic of a very tight site, all Selects Terex Comedil cranes, Jeremy i am sure that they will be fitted with anti collision software, If i remember rightly Select operators wind off at 50 mph most others do it at 40mph but when these are put out of service with their jibs up at a certain angle and in the weathervane position they should be fine in high winds. Most problems occur when the operator does not put the jib at it's correct angle and then let them free slew in the weathervane position. If they dont do this the crane does not move with the wind then it catches the jib and takes it and bends it backwards over the counterjib, this happened a couple of times last year with the Jost manufactured luffers.

That's a blatant rip-off of a Thunderbirds machine:
