Hovering adjacent to the Jubilee Tower on the moors above Darwen as a photo / video platform covering the historic replacement of the dome on Darwen Tower after high winds on 11th Nov 2010 blew it off. Apprentices at WEC Group Ltd built a new dome as a project and donatated it to the town. It weighs 900kg and made of stainless steel. Given its remote location, a helicopter (G-PDGF) was used to install it on the tower, built in 1897 to commemorate Queen Victoria's diamond jubilee (Canon 50D + Sigma 50-500)
