Actually, there are routes already built that way so large loads can be moved around. Things like traffic light poles that can be turned and as in the video, the electrical crew who lead or follow, have bucket-lifts and poles to lift any wires hanging down in the way. Out where I live moving house size loads is the norm rather than the other way around, a lot of what I did in my job was moved this way (very large skid modules)Hobbes said:yes, with 3 months of planning to find a clear route and prepare the places where a clear route can't be found (by temporarily removing traffic lights, signs and other obstructions).kcran567 said:I've seen an entire house moved on interstate highways on more than a few occasions with the very large flatbeds and a few white trucks with yellow hazard lights.Hobbes said:An F-22 is 13 meters wide and 5 meters high. Moving something that big is a major operation that needs far more than 2 days of preparation: many roads don't have more than 5 meters clearance across and ~4.5 m in height.kcran567 said:Idiotic!!!
Billions lost because they couldn't be loaded on a flatbed and trucked out of state??
Someone's ass should be fired. They knew perfectly well how serious the storm was.
Should have been trucked out of the area
Disassembling the aircraft to a road-transportable state could also easily take more than 2 days.
