1976 - The Pig Escapes over Battersea Power Station

Post by Keith Jordan » Sun Dec 21, 2008 9:54 pm

Most people probably know that, on 3rd December 1976, a large inflatable pig was moored over the top of Battersea Power Station for the photo session for the album cover. Unfortunately, the moorings holding the pig in place gave way and the great pig "flew" over South East England and landed on a farmers barn at East Stour Farm in Kent!

Are there any photos/video of the pig breaking free?
