Fly by Nite Volvo Concert Trucks NEC Birmingham

This candid shot was taken by me when I was tipping backstage on tour with an American band called the Flaming Lips! Photograph was taken Oct 2006 and was my last tour with Fly by Nite.

My truck S100FBN is seen on the right, whilst Matt Clark's MR54 FBN is seen dropping trailer on left. S100 FBN was a 420hp fixed wheel low ride and on consecutive tours took me to St Petersburg in Rusia, Marrakesh in North Africa and a short trip to Athens!!
Fantastic truck, but due to retire due to emissions restrictions as these trucks often travel through London and Switzerland etc.

Picture is in fact the NIA Birmingham, part of the NEC group but 10 miles away in the city centre. Great place. I worked there for 9 years.
