Mammoth Outdoor Stage Is Mounted on 224 Balloon Tires

Called the largest of its kind ever built, a 150-ton movable stage has just been completed for outdoor entertainments in a New York City stadium. Roofless, the giant stage is supported by 224 truck-type balloon tires, and is rolled into position by a tractor and a complicated pulley system. Although the huge structure has a stage 140 feet wide, and six dressing rooms built into the wings, it can be dismantled in one hour into fifty-three separate sections for shipment to a new location.

    It’d make a great ad for John Deere!
