How Boeing Transports Their 100-Foot Wings Through Washington

A lot of work goes into building large products. But it takes quite a lot of work to transport those projects as well.

Take, for example, Boeing’s massive, 100-foot wings, which much be transported from Frederickson to Everett, Washington, which is 70 miles away.  


Three different drivers must coordinate to move the enormous wings across Washington's highways. A driver operating a pilot van clears the lane for the truck driver; the truck driver communicates with the pilot van; and a steer car driver follows the truck driver’s directions. 

If you want to see the trip in action, Business Insider has the details in a new video.
