I was able to get a shot of the new laser IMAX projector getting lifted into the Event Cinemas on Queen St. here in Auckland. I didn't even realize what they were lifting until until a few hours later when I thought to zoom in on the picture.

Personally, this is one of the several screens around town I intend on watching Star Wars on, including my cinema in Matakana and the new Reading Cinema in town with Atmos.

I always liked this one - tail rotor failure while sling loading. Pilot pickled the load and rode it down. Pilot survived. Sling loads are most hazardous since you're operating well within the height/velocity curve:
