Today my entire team left work to help our friend Ray move an airplane he purchased into his garage.
Hm. An airplane into his garage. Is this going to be a very small plane? Is his garage a full–size hangar? I was not sure what to think about this, but I was sure happy for the chance to get out of work for an hour and still get paid!
It turned out that the plane was completely dismantled and in a HUGE wooden crate—probably 12 feet long, 5 feet wide, and 4 feet tall. It took about 15 people to move it off of the trailer and onto the dollies. Then we wheeled it into his garage. It was a little too easy, actually.
I was hoping I would get dirty or possible smash my fingers, that way I could have some proof that I moved a real airplane. I wanted to take some pictures of it in all its glory. But, the glory of a splintery wooden crate was not very imageworthy.
Moving the crate off the truck was so quick that I did not even get a chance to take a picture! But, I am thinking about going back to Ray's after work just to take a quick snapshot for posterity's sake.
Since then, Ray went to his house and took a picture of the crate for me, so I added it in up above.
