Shock & Awe - The Greatest Fireworks Show on Earth

Oban Fireworks Display

Very rarely has the description "Fireworks Spectacular" been so aptly used. Here's a video of the Oban Fireworks Display of 2011. A display which should have lasted 30 minutes ends up lasting just 50 seconds, and we're not treated to a single firework fizzling out, this is £6,000 worth of explosives being simultaneously deployed.

Councillor Roddy McCuish told the BBC that, "It was like daylight. It was absolutely fantastic.", before apologising to the public and promising to setup another display, for free, at the end of the month.

We say all firework displays should be like this!
