Toronto Downtown Blackout 08/11/22 « on: August 12, 2022, 12:29:17 AM » Author: joseph_125
Was looking at some pictures of the aftermath of a blackout in the downtown core of Toronto. A crane on top of a barge managed to strike some overhead transmission lines, knocking out power to parts of the downtown. Bonus points to those that can spy something interesting in the pictures.

I see what looks like a top mount OV-20.

Yep, you spotted it. I first photographed them 10 years ago. Amazing they're still there.
