We come now to a series of photographs that show aerial botchery as an art form! This is a true delight, a masterpiece of the cowboy aerial rigger’s profession! The next few pictures were taken on the roof of a shop in a retail park. The red surface is the edge of the tiled roof, and the brown below is it the very thin aluminium cladding that they use on these buildings. In this first photograph the mast is supporting two arrays. The original idea, I imagine, was to fix the lot to the aluminium using the little loft mount and a few self-tap screws, but this evidently didn’t satisfy our perfectionist installer. Not totally happy with the structural integrity of his creation (in other words, he was scared it might fall down before he got paid) he has made daisy chains from cable ties and, well, used them as guy ropes, sort of . . .
