Skyfire 2007

By johnboy - 11 March 2007 24

Michael West and Bartron have both sent in pictures of the FM 104.7 Skyfire experience for 2007.

I had something else on last night but, as always, would be interested to hear what you lot thought of it.

Thanks to realityskin who caught it (particularly the F-111 dump and burn) and put it on YouTube

There were SO many people there – unreal atmosphere and not overcrowded. We arrived by bus at 7:30 ish. Didn’t catch much of the preceding concert as we were too far from a screen, but it didn’t matter. We were near where the youtube clip was shot from, ie on the regatta globe side, which was comfortably packed all along the lake. The other side of the lake, that you can see in the pics, was also packed. Weather was ideal, balmy with just the hint of a breeze. The National Library was purple-lit, and Questacon (or whatever that turret building is) was blue.

Buses were standing room full, yet everyone was in good spirits and not one ‘sillybuggers moment’ to report. A first class fireworks display, there were hearts, the letter S for Superman, some gorgeous weeping golden ones, all in synch. Just awesome, we’ll go again. I recommend the bus.

It was a fantastic night – I had a small picnic with some friends on the southern foreshore of LBG and all their expectations were exceeded. I have to admit that I LOVE skyfire because it is just a great opportunity to gather with friends overlooking our beautiful city and be entertained by fantastic fireworks to imaginative soundtracks. Will be booking myslef in again next year.

Thanks for the comment by Nik.

But I would like to correct that the YouTube video is NOT mine.

best viewed from Brindabella Road – with your woman and a picnic hamper – Dinner at bulls head then on to the main event…. No crowds – no noise (apart from the radio and normal bush noises) and no traffic. I reckon Ill do that again

After just missing the Aussie Day one, I was ready for it this time… Photos here

Also, lots more photos in this discussion in the Canberra flickr group here.

The dump and burn happened while I was still in the carpark (damn civic traffic). It managed to set off 5 or 6 car alarms so not only did we get the roar of the F-111 but a pre-firework blinking light show.
