Accidents, Rollovers & Recoveries from the Eighties Video 2
PLEASE READ This is a further collection of Recovery Jobs that I did in the
late eighties. It gives you a chance to see some of the great characters
that were in the industry back in the days before it went all Health and
Safety. Plus of course a number of Policemen so comfortable with what they
were doing, that they allow their sense of humour to show through.
The Stripper was for one of our HGV drivers who was always playing tricks
on people and his wife knew that if she set him up at home, he would see
right through it, So we did it at work using a real Police Officer the
driver knew, to introduce the lady as his new navigator.
I know some of the technics look appalling now, but we knew what we were
doing and I never 'lost a man on my watch'! If anyone recognises
themselves, please take a moment to say hello.You will find several more
collections like this on my 'U-Tub' Channel.
A look round REME Bordon (Part One)
I was offered a chance to see how the Army carries out vehicle recovery
(and to take a few friends with me) and so group of us duly arrived at REME
Bordon, to have a play.
It was a great day and our thanks go to our kind host. This video is mainly
a look around the museum reserve and what a fine collection this is.
In part two we will watch a recovery being undertaken.
Redneck Truck Recovery Gone Wild

How not to unload an excavator.
I happened to have my video camera handy when this guy unloaded this
this is what happens when you have an excavator that is too wide for the
trailer that it was delivered on, dodgy!!!
Flipped Dump Truck - Tow Winch Pulls It Upright Laguna Beach
Tow Truck winch pulls the truck back onto it's wheels. Heading down Park
Avenue, which is a steep hill, this dump truck full of dirt had brake
failure. He ran right through a stop sign, clipped a curb, flipped over
onto the driver's side and slid sideways down the street smack into a
garage. The driver walked away with only minor injuries. Emergency crews
pulled him out of the small back window of his crunched cab. Photo stills
at the end are from the Orange County Register Online.
