I would not like to be in that crane, no way. Once inside your basically just hanging 300m? above the ground. I bet it wobbles like hell with the wind. I think I'd have a heart attack.

Once you've climbed the ladder to the top the bit where you have to somehow get inside it must be terrifying....Glad its not my job.

i'd like to know how they get it down....i know it's segmental and the crane itself can move the segments, but what about the cab.....chinook?

A bit off topic but thinking about climbing the crane I remembered the worst video ever, it makes my hands sweat every time watching. What a job this is.
