Day of the Cranes

October 2000

What's That On Top?
Nice to See You!

By this point I was as close as I could get to the middle of the span.

Question: Why the third crane and not the first or second?  The answer I came up with is:
Would you want to be atop the leading crane when you realized it was going to collide with the bridge?
The tugboat behind the ship must have been ready to tug very hard in an emergency.

Another question: Why not the last crane?
