Crikey, I hate heights. This one not for me.
Bit like trimming a tree and standing on a branch you are cutting..

When I first saw them I thought they were a photoshop job but not so sure now. Thought I would post them as they look good anyway

Not a bad idea - the excavator is suspended from the crane at all times. The rubble is knocked into the chimney.

Still reckon Fred Dibnah would have done a better job though!!!

That is the most bizarre chimney demolition I've seen, so the digger had to be modified to have the three leg undercarriage, and what if some of the walls gave way unexpectedly, and the crane gets a sudden 15 tonne load at full reach ... crazy

The crane lifted him up there in the first place and looks like it's taking some of the load at all times - the arms are just there to steady it.
