Miller park before the fall of Big Blue?
 
Apologies if this is not the best place to put this..
I'm sure you've all seen footage of the collapse of the massive crane "Big Blue" during the construction of Milwaukee's Miller Park stadium?
I've been trying to find pictures of that crane before the fatal accident, with no luck. All I seem to be able to find is the wreckage, or that famous video of the collapse.

Anyhow, I'm looking for pictures of the construction of Miller Park, and that giant crane before the fatal fall. Anyone have any, or know where I can find some?

Yep, that's the one.

Yeah, that's her..She and those three ironworkers who died deserved much better. It's heartbreaking to see something like that.
Watching the video of the collapse makes me want to hug the two Tower cranes on my jobsite and thank P'tah they're standing right where they belong. It hurts to even think about something like that happening here.
Where did you find those photos, Comrade?

I just searched "Miller Park Construction" in images.yahoo.com and they came up.

I'm surprised that there are not more pics of that crane before the accident online..Something so massive that the locals nicknamed it and people went out of their way to watch it would surely have some more pictures around.
