With thanks to a press release from the team,
we have some good details of their show. In total over a tonne
of pyro was going to be blown up, with a net explosive content
of nearly 500kg. This material was sourced from both China and
UK suppliers. An astonishing 755 aerial shells were present ranging
from 75mm up to 300mm (12 inch).
There were 251 candles from 12mm to 50mm and 120
single shot candles. Plus, 83 100mm mines, 24 flight rockets and
27 large cakes! If that wasn't enough to whet our appetites (and
walk very carefully around the site!), special sequences listed
included water bursting bengal flares, comet lattice sequences,
falling leaves, multicolour moving stars, shapes sequences and
finally pink, orange and lemon special colours. All this to be
fired using the Pyromate system supported by some sequences programmed
into the Fireone system.
Many thanks to the Pyro 1 team for letting us
on site to take these pictures. Check out the video and pictures
below to see this superb display in action.
