Oban Fireworks Display, blink and miss it

Don't think I'll be asked back to rig the charges again.

Although the wife says she's used to that kinda thing

BBC News - Oban fireworks display 'gone in 50 seconds'

I missed it as I was in Scapa at the weekend.
At least the re run I'll be able to see.
It must have been impressive to see though, 1000 per seconds worth of fireworks going bang for a full minute
