Larry Mattingly and I went to Berlin Germany representing the Firelinx pyrotechnic firing system at the International Symposium on Fireworks from April 3-7 2006.
We were only able to get away from the convention briefly one afternoon but we were able to "see the sites".
There were a couple very nice fireworks shows and an intense meeting schedual.
We went to BAM where the Europeans test all kinds of things pyrotechic and explosive including but not limited to Fireworks, Automobile Air Bags etc.
They were testing what happened when stacked cases of fireworks ignight. They did two test for us . . one with cases of Rockets. VERY IMPRESIVE!
On a Symposium trip to BAM we passed through imaculate forest that made me imagine Hansel and Grettel fairy tails ..
We went to the National Museums where the Germans put all of the art that they
requesitioned durring their occupations of other contries including Greece and Egypt.
They had entire greek building clear down to the foundations rebuilt inside of their museums.
There was evidence of WWII everywhere. Berlin is only now rebuilding it's National Museums
Here are 4 parts to the closing nights fireworks by Parente. This is some of the most impresive choreography I have ever seen.
