A mast system was used at Nailsea Glassworks site in 1987/8 by Cloud 9 High
Level Photography. I found that the company had been dissolved in 1993, but
found a contact that had taken it over, but do not think that he is still
operating as 5 years ago I asked if he was interested in providing an
article on the technique for the CBA - SW Journal, but did not get a
response. I can send the details off-list.
If you 'Google' Cloud 9 Aerial Photography you will get a galaxy of
contacts, USA and UK.
