    When did you get promoted to Super moderator? Did you get the associated pay grade increase as well? :cool:

    Or "Shop tips". Probably depends on whether the truck is going to the airport or the local trash dump. :D

    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.

    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.

    and 1 Duster
    IMG_0023.jpg 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.
