Watch Out For That... Plane?

© Thorpe Park

This is what you get for not paying attention to a ride's construction - sometimes even after the track is complete some big surprises remain!  In this case that big surprise comes in the form of a massive faux plane that's been added to Thrope Park's new Swarm coaster.

If you look closely at the track as it dives under the wing you can see how close of a fit that's going to be.  Keep in mind that the trains on Bolliger and Mabillard Wing coasters are huge, making that close call even closer.

More photos of this impressive set piece can be seen here.
