#11 Cannons

This is a repainted rehash

of Elvin's little aluminum

cannon from Circus Circus

that I worked on & cabled

it to beams 10 ft above a

false ceiling that was of

the most difficult rigging

I had ever done

This is at Jimmy Cole's house in residential St. Cloud, FL. Imagine what the neighbors must have thought!

Why was it there Patricia

Do you know who owns this

baby cannon now as Susan

Bale ended up with it in

the divorce & I thought

Jody Jordan was buying it

Chic Silber said...

At Circus Circus this cannon

was controlled remotely quite

a distance from where it was

suspended using an umbilical

cable with hydraulic lines to

the custom control desk that

I built to contain not only

the hydraulic pump but audio

video & a major blast device

This was several years ago, I believe Brian Miser had this cannon and he and Jimmy are friends. I guess Brian had some layover time, and decided to incorporate a friendly visit with practice.

copied the lightning streak
