Pig Flies Again For Pink Floyd Album Celebration

PIG

A large inflatable pig has once again flown over Battersea Power Station in London, 35 years since its trotters first took to the sky.

The stunt marked the release of all 14 Pink Floyd albums as remastered Discovery editions under the banner of Why Pink Floyd…?

The Pink Floyd pig, which originally flew over the south London riverside landmark in 1976 to celebrate the release of the band’s album Animals, famously caused a drama when it escaped its moorings and floated off to a field in Kent after straying across the Heathrow Airport flight path. For its sins, the pig has since been locked in a Suffolk workshop and is now deemed not to be airworthy.

In addition to today's launch there will also be a lavish new version of Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon album with Wish You Were Here and The Wall being given the deluxe treatment over the coming months.
