The 2011 Isle of Man TT races celebrated 100 years of the mountain course and we were asked to lay on a spectacular centenary fireworks display. Our fireworks display director Steve Boothman, head of Fantastic Fireworks Manchester, led a team 10 pyrotechnicians who spent 2 days preparing the show in Douglas harbour before the Friday night lift-off. Nearly a quarter of a ton of fireworks exploded in the night sky, providing an awesome spectacle for the thosuands who lined the promenade to watch. Among the many special effects was a sequence named Plutonium Pulse in which 100 fireworks were pumped into the sky in rapid succession, creating a continuous pulse of radiating gold stars. Tourism boss Michael Docherty was delighted with the show, adding ‘it was the best we have ever seen.’
