Thread: Bear On The Move!

    I have heard some of the rumors on how they are doing this. On the gear, and no outer wing panels. I call BS because I'm pretty sure it would still be too wide to transport by truck. I have heard how Lyle first transported it as only the center section sitting vertical on the firewall, no tail and even then it was a bitch. I could be wrong though.

    As soon as I close up shop (next hour or so) I'll drive over and take a look.

    Will send pictures.

    Already saw one. I guess it's not BS after all!

    That is going to be a long trip. Anything that wide won't be able to travel at night, and will require police escorts in some places. I just hope they don't hit anything with it, or get hit by anything on the way down.

    Dreadnought was moved on a trailer, in a banked position shown here: http://sandersaircraft.com/aircraft_...ought-move.asp

    Why can't they bolt it to the top of a Twin Otter or something similar and carry it like they carry the Space Shuttle?

    Nah... just use NASA'a launch pad creeper thing that used to move the shuttles (and Saturn V's) to the pad and put the tailhook back on the Bear so they can practice carrier landings on it while en route to Texas

    I saw the same pic that Mike did. It's sitting on the gear on a trailer with the prop and outer wing panels removed.
