Still Waters Posted August 18, 2022 #1 Share Posted August 18, 2022 (IP: Staff) · A man who climbed Blackpool Tower to capture a once-in-a-lifetime selfie with the Red Arrows said the experience was "absolutely breath-taking". Russ Edwards was given permission to scale 518ft (158m) to the tower flagpole and grab the perfect shot during the town's annual air show. Mr Edwards said he was able to capture the image after creating a "massive long selfie stick" out of carbon fibre, which he then attached to his harness. He was supported by high-risk safety specialists Jack Perry and Chris Fricke and said the trio "got the absolute best seats in the house". https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lancashire-62591694 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
