'Orient Iris' launching (4)
See previous photos. This is the arrangement for smashing the bottle. The long arm holds the bottle (in red & white cloth; I'm not sure whether it's champagne or sake) & is held in the horizontal position by a thin line. On pressing the "launch" button the line is released, the arm swings down & the bottle breaks on the bracket at bottom.
