    Link: Scotland Still Figuring Out Fireworks - Hey Scotland, you release one or two at a time with a big build up grand finale at the end. Not all at the same time.

    Oban, last year. IIRC the contractors ran the display again (properly)a little while later.

    f*ck that, this is way better. Instead of an hour long boring as light show, you get one giant explosion that lasts a couple of minutes.

    Also, was that a tree on fire at the 52 second mark?

    Scotland takes the same approach with fireworks as it does with alcohol.

    i think a long, drawn out firework display is boring as hell. i went to the rocks in sydney to watch the fireworks one year and found it boring and repetitive. just fire them all up in the quickest time possible, i want to be shocked and awed!

    I`m pretty sure this happened somewhere else last year, and the company in charge put on a second fire work display free of charge a month later. Might have been new year?

    Anyway, it`s bound to happen some time when you rely on technology.

    I suspected a repost, but...
    It Seems Legit!

    Someone`s not getting paid for that display!

    @Kain1: It could be more frequent since fireworks are much more "high-tech" which makes for more, rather than less, screw-ups!
    OR it could be that more are recorded, and thus make the news...

    @bataleon27 & @LordJim: All the YouTube videos I found carried today`s date, so I don`t think it`s from a year ago...
    ... although the same thing could easily have happened before, with the company making good later!

    Oh, FFS, stop responding to criticism like an American. This was a complete balls up. Whether or not anybody else ever ballsed up in the same way is completely irrelevant.
