do it as well as you can,but learn to do it better
the first clip made me LOL ..... a lot .... especially the two guy's reactions after he'd departed .... some quite novel driving in it too
nice set up in what looked like limited space them German crane company's do seem to be on the ball when it comes to there rigs and set ups. Don't seem to do much with cranes at the moment seems to be all hung from diggers for us these days. Did notice they short jacked one leg though onto a beam wonder why?enjoy ... seriously impressive ...Köln cathedral , Germany, setting up to taking the hanging scaff down
spread the load onto a wider surface area, at a guess ..... that plaza is all paved with stone slabs ... least it was the last time I was there surprised they weren't using bigger rigger mats, but doubt they were stressing the m/c much ... more about height I'd guess .... 1000 tonner I'd be guessing, 'praps 800tnice set up in what looked like limited space them German crane company's do seem to be on the ball when it comes to there rigs and set ups.

The mighty Rover SD1 V8 in action.
This enthralling piece of footage is the second part of the crucial delivery of a donor liver by the Metropolitan Police.
The liver was collected from Stansted Airport by the Essex police on its first part of its journey – however the Metropolitan police had the unenviable task of navigating into London to the Cromwell Hospital The journey begins from Junction 7 by two Metropolitan police Rover SD1 3500s.
The two cars(one a back-up) speed Southbound into London. At times their speeds peak at 120 Mph . The journey was made in 30 mins with just 5 minutes to spare and described as one of the finest examples of police driving under pressure ever captured on video.
Around 50 police officers were used to help transport the liver. These were mainly posted in advance to road junctions to stop the traffic as the liver run approached. When driving through The City area of London, two motorbikes from the City of London police helped escort the Metropolitan police cars.central London on a busy Friday afternoon, they have only 35 minutes to do it and save the patient's life.
have always loved 'em ..... ran them for a decade, or more and have had dozens of 'em, including several single plenum Vitesses ..... very fast motors in the right hands and don't come much better than a traffic plod.
My dad still holds the record for an organ run, from Newport's Royal Gwent to one of the London hospitals, (might have been the Royal Free??), late one evening, many years ago and I was only told recently, by one of his ex-colleagues, of it ... these days they're flown, so doubt he'll ever lose it, for an organ 'road run' .... in those days it went door to door, in one motor ..
the run in the video must've taken some organising and probably at very short notice
i also noticed how smart the police drivers were shirt, tie, boots.
Not like they are now.
they did ...... at almost every junction ... and then the solos escorted 'em the last ten minutes ....... too much faff Ruben, to secure the package, with no time to do it ... and a very heavy box .... plus a much safer ride in the cars .... dropping it would not have been on the agendaWhy didn't they use a motorbike if going into London traffic?
That is a great video. Wish I was that efficient!a man happy in his work ................ and bloody good at it too

Something tells me it’s not his first day
