The Pink Floyd pig was airborne once again on Monday in London.

The portly porcine, which was the cover star on the British band's 1977 concept album 'Animals,' flew over London's Battersea Power Station Monday morning in the British capital.

The band's record label, EMI Music, staged the flyover to help mark the re-issue of Pink Floyd's 14 studio albums re-mastered on compact disc.

The pig measured 30 feet long and 15 feet high. It is an exact replica of the original inflatable pig created 35 years ago for the original cover photo.

Like many other artists and bands from the 1960s and 1970s, Pink Floyd is hoping to capitalize on baby boomers remembering their younger days with the albums reissue.

With the Pink Floyd pig flying again, it brings up rumors of a band reunion. But no announcement to that end has been made by either band members or their label.

Since their founding in 1965, Pink Floyd has sold over 200 million albums worldwide.
