Moscow’s Red Square, Sparrow Hills, and Poklonnaya Hill was rammed to the rafters, where thousands and thousands of troops and state of the art weapons and military vehicles marched in perfect formation to celebrate the defeat of Nazi Germany.
Like any special occasion – the night ended with some fireworks 🙂
On the 2nd April 2017 the Lotte World Tower in Seoul, South Korea was the setting of a spectacular firework display.
The display was in celebration of the opening of the Lotte World Tower (which had taken more than six years to build) now South Korea’s tallest building and the fifth tallest building in the world.
30,000 fireworks were used in a show that lasted for eleven minutes and the display could be seen for miles around. The Fireworks show had eight different genres of music and the theme of the fireworks show was ‘Miracle of Korea’.
Lotte World Tower is now the fifth tallest building in the world, only beaten by the Ping An Finance Centre in China, Shanghai Tower in China, Royal Clock Tower in Saudi Arabia and the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
The fireworks display is reported to have cost around $3.5 million dollars, and the pyrotechnics took a professional French display team 17 days to install, however, this was a fireworks show the people of South Korea will never forget.
When it comes to rocket launches our good friend Colin Furze didn’t mess about, when it came to celebrating his 1 million subscribers on his youtube channel.
For their latest video, the legendary ‘The Slow Mo Guys’ decided to launch a rocket, with the help of some Purdue University students, high into the Indiana sky.
Gav and Dan recorded with a Phantom V2511 high speed camera to film the explosive slow motion footage at 28,000 frames per second. They also used a Phantom Flex 4k camera at 1,000 frames per second to capture a ‘wide angle’ shot of the footage.
