Submitted for your amusement, from the Twilight Zone.
When did you get promoted to Super moderator? Did you get the associated pay grade increase as well?
News to me. And yes, my HBA salary went up a thousand percent!
Maybe I'm just doing a really good job. I'm "super".
Shouldn't this be under "Crashes in the News"?
Or "Shop tips". Probably depends on whether the truck is going to the airport or the local trash dump.
Not that crazy. Seen a couple planes leaving the airport like that. Just not in a bank. The real question is who here just got a plane because it’s exactly how this crew would transport a plane. Speak up. Hopefully they did now saw the wing to make it fit.
It's a typo...they forgot the second "p".
Make mine medium rare, with steak fries, Topaz....
When you gotta move the plane and that's the only truck you can borrow...
I had my Grob sticking out the back of a big UHaul truck. Stopped at the Gallup, New Mexico UHaul dealer to get a leaky radiator hose fixed. He said Uhaul doesn't allow stuff sticking beyond the door. He wouldn't change the hose either, he said wait till it gets worse. So I headed out.
This is how the quickbuild Lancair Legacy fuselages are shipped. The stub spars will JUST fit in a uhaul.
California to Pennsylvania
Door is down and a trailer. Does not count.
I forgot the exciting part.
Known icing LOL!
2 SGUs at a time:

No pics of the 14-13 with 2 sets of wings going over Donner pass - in the winter - in the same under powered Dodge - on a weekend with lots traffic in a hurry to get to Reno.
That old beat up Dodge hauled a few other planes as well........and the Diesel I bought to replace it when it lost a wheel.
This is the 1959 Cessna 172 bring it home. After the complete restoration and flying it for a couple of years it was sold to a museum.
Had the trailer built to haul airplanes on with a hyd tilt bed and an electric winch and also had a wing rack over the top of the truck from front to rear bumper. This truck and trailer has hauled many airplanes. I still own the truck.
Yep, looks like Pittsburgh in the winter. Lived there from 15 to 29 years old.
250 miles with a 40 mph crosswind. ...I need a bigger truck
