My parents were at one of the Wembley 86 gigs (not sure which date) and as you all know there were these enormous baloon figures of the band, and my parents recall one of them getting untied and flying off into the air as they were full of helium. My dad seems to think it was freddie, but ive caught glimpse of it on the Real Magic footage, and i looks like john. Funnier still, the touring crew had to put out announcements asking anybody if they'd seen a giant helium balloon of a member of Queen..not sure if they got it back. Does anyone know any more? My dad vaguely remembers hearing that it ended up hundereds of miles away in someones garden..
lol

I think Pink Floyd's pig was shot down somewhere after escaping and flying away while making the "Animals" cover...I was always wondering what happened to that Queen one :)
