About the image
For the Pink Floyd Animals cover shoot, an inflatable pink pig was tethered to one of the southern chimneys at London's Battersea Power Station. However, on the second day of shooting the pig broke free of its moorings and rose into the flight path of Heathrow Airport to the astonishment of pilots in approaching planes. The runaway pig was eventually tracked by police helicopters before coming to ground in Kent.
