Ass Backwards

Ass Backwards


This may be the longest mast ever transported by road, and at 40.5 meters, you can imagine this rig’s ability to negotiate corners en route from Cornwall to Pendennis.  According to Complete Freight, who shipped the rig from the US to UK, the truck had to drive the last half mile backwards – including under this bridge.  Considering that the cost of the spar is easily in the high 6 figures, that’s some nerve-wracking backing.

More pics here, and in case you were wondering what it powers, have a look here.  Thanks to Wetass for the heads up.
