Oil Platform Explosion - November 2012 | KATC.com | Acadiana-Lafayette, Louisiana[gallery]/11/ Have a look through the photos at the link above, and see if you notice anything significant in them. Hint: Notice the boom on the crane. Please be aware, that it is a lattice-boom specifically built for picking loads, and is trussed out of high strength steel. Any comments? Any references to other threads here on NWFA?
