Matthew S.‘s B777 Project Update (Oct 15/06)
Today (Sunday), the FDS team assembled in force to tackle the challenge of moving the B767 nose into the FDS shop. Part one was moving the Nose Sectional from the storage area that we used for preliminary cutting. This process literally took months as Steve Cos and his team worked carefully around the unit removing excess material and parts that would serve no purpose down the road.
Two "Lift Devices" were used to accomplish this major step. The first aflat bed that hauled the unit on its back (nose to the sky). the second was a Heavy Equipment Hauler with Crane capability.
