aamove1.jpgA lot of preparation work in addition to lots of volunteer time was put into making the move across the street a reality. American Airlines, Dade County, Odebrecht Construction, T.Y. Lin Engineering all collaborated on a class-A job. The students of George T. Baker Aviation school are the very fortunate recepients of this 6 million dollar MD80 jet that will hopefully inspire students to make aviation a career!

aamove4.jpgThe initial move from the airport to the intersection at LeJeune Road commences!
aamove5.jpg
aamove5.jpgThe crane took the MD80 on a left turn from the airport perimeter, over the palm trees as seen here and finally set it down in the middle of the intersection
aamove6.jpg
aamove6.jpgI had the crane operator stop the crane drop at this point in order to get one final shot in the air and it had to be timed just right so the fuselage was under the traffic signal pole

aamove7.jpgSet down on LeJeune Road, I asked the crew to clear out of the way for a clean shot of the airplane and its surrounding environment...

aamove11.jpgThis was probably the most challenging part of the MD80 move. The right main gear had to ride on the center median in order for the already shortened wings to clear both sides of the street. At this point, the MD80 would be tugged to the left to it's final resting place

1994jpcolga.jpg
1994jpcolga.jpgThis photo was taken inside one of American Airlines' maintenance hangars in LaGuardia. The MD80 was brought in there for post-crash investigation and as is usually done after an accident, hide it from the passengers flying into and out of the airport. When I walked inside the airplane, about half way down the fuselage I felt a hump under my feet, that is where the fuselage buckled as the airplane ran off the end of the runway (I believe it was runway 31?), coming to rest on a dike. There were no fatalities luckily. For those that know me these days, obviously I don't wear my hair like that anymore haha
