The Angel of the North


Fakta tentang Angel nie ( mls plak nak taip balik so copy dr website Gateshead city council :
# Its 54 metre (175 foot) wingspan is bigger than a Boeing 757 or 767 jet and almost the same as a Jumbo jet.
# It is 20 metres (65 feet) high - the height of a five storey building or four double decker buses.
# It weighs 200 tonnes - the body 100 tonnes and the wings 50 tonnes each.
# There is enough steel in it to make 16 double decker buses or four Chieftain tanks.
# It will last for more than 100 years.
# It will withstand winds of more than 100 miles per hour.
# Below the sculpture, massive concrete piles 20 metres deep will anchor it to the solid rock beneath.
# It is made of weather resistant Cor-ten steel, containing a small amount of copper, which forms a patina on the surface that mellows with age.
# Huge sections of the Angel - up to six metres wide and 25 metres long - were transported to the site by lorry with a police escort.
# The total cost of The Angel of the North was £800,000.
