February 3rd 2005

Australia A luffer tower crane suffered a jib failure in heavy winds. While a sudden gust of windlike a microburst is possible, I would wonder about the weather vaning of this crane. Were the brakes released? Was is boomed down to the proper boom angle? I'd be up there counting the wraps on the boom hoist and seeing how much line was spooled off to get my answer on the boom angle.
