Moving Aircraft!

In 2014, I posted a video of a Eurofighter Typhoon prototype being hung at the Royal Air Force Museum. The movement of such large objects represents a major logistical challenge and the process and time required to manage such moves is impressive. Thanks to the guys over at The Aviationist, I have just come across the following video of aircraft being moved by the National Museum of the US Air Force. It shows a variety of aircraft, including a Convair B-58 Hustler and North American XB-70 Valkyrie, being moved from Patterson Field down State Route 444 to the Museum’s new home at historic Wright Field during 1970. As you can see, such movements are no mean feat of logistics but give you some insight to the challenges inherent in running a major aviation museum.
