Nigel,

Some nice shots, there! Was the plane damaged, that you know of, from that last shot where he hit the pylon?! And you don't want to enter any of these? So far, we don't have any air races entered, AFAIK!

Here's the sequence of the pylon being replaced. Look at the times take on the shots to see how quickly they work:

14:44:46: The beheaded pylon is still deflating, but the repair squad is already on its way in a RIB

14:45:39: The squad is fitting the replacement pylon

The camera helicopter is overhead, filming the repair team in action

14:47:11: They've started inflating the replacement pylon

14:47:25: The pylon is almost up

14:48:08: Repair complete, the team is leaving

14:49:55: The gate is back in action, with the repair team's RIB still nearby

The whole process only took about five minutes, from pylon demolition to racing resuming.
