737-fuselages go swimming!
« on: July 05, 2014, 06:13:48 AM »
Boeing lost several Boeing 737-fuselages in a train-derailment in Montana. The derailed cars carried at least six Boeing 737 fuselages which fell down a steep slope and ended up in a river. :oops:
At least nobody got hurt, but these fuselages are pretty sure write-offs.

Oops. Someone evidently had a truly shitty day at work.  ;D

Glad nobody's hurt, it's now up to the insurance companies to work everything out I guess!

I'd think that rocky tumble was worse for them than getting wet.

Insurance co would be a little bit glad if someone buys cockpit or cut it up cabin for home mock up etc.

Might end up being used as cabin trainers too, like the Etihad A340 in Toulouse.

Yeah  also maybe for fire rescue training, too.
