OTD December 3 - Pink Floyd

1976: During the photo shoot for Pink Floyd's "Animals" album cover, a 40-foot inflatable pig being photographed at Battersea Power Station on the River Thames breaks free. Pilots in the London area were warned of a pig loose in the skies, which reached a height of 18,000 feet before coming down in Kent. The inflatable pig returned the following day for the photo shoot, but, as earlier photographs of the power station were considered better, the image of the pig would actually later be superimposed onto one of those photos.
