Launcher Work "Party", expanded

Another work "party". The launcher was raised to a vertical position for the first time in 20 years. It raised and lowered 9 times, then something went wrong! It has now been wrong for 2 weeks, and ... .

Items in the picture include:

  1. The end of the launcher frame (the part that rises vertically)
  2. An 8 inch by 8 inch timber to prevent permanent damage to head (and equipment) if the launcher end should fall.
  3. The crane mounted on the wrecker, used to lift the arm for the check.

The unlatching mechanism (to release the arm so that it can go up) is being checked (again).
