Truss the 3rd

The third truss is now up. It was lifted in the early hours of the morning and we got down to the site at around 10pm to marvel at the masterpiece. Again the procedure went off smoothly. Meanwhile, the template that held the second truss has been moved around the corner with the Kobelco crane having crawled along the sand track to pick up this third truss. The fourth truss is nearly complete, while the 5th truss is now underway.

View from the lookout, showing the royal 3.

Truss the third in place from a side-on angle. Note, in the foreground, the nearly complete fourth truss and the fifth truss with it's first few components.

Perched in all its splendour.

A more distant view.

Number 3, what a beauty...
