This superload was two years in the making. This Lockheed Constellation will be a cocktail lounge at the new TWA Hotel @ JFk Airport. This superload was 145' long with a 46' rear overhang. There were several support vehicles along for the trip as well as a video/camera crew filming a documentary and Connecticut State Police escort. The Tritail load had hydraulic issues and didn't move until the following morning. Both loads were delivered to the Throgs Neck Bridge and the NYC line where they are waiting for NYC permits. Patriot Certified Pilot Cars provided route consultation and CT, NYS and NYST route surveys and pilot cars on the CT and NY legs of the trip. Special thanks to Worldwide Aircraft Recovery and Skipper's Shipper.
This series of clips is from a dairy silo high load from the NY/PA line on I-84 to the Guida-Seibert Dairy in New Britain CT. I was a good run with a few challenges and we even passed a superload on the way. This was a lead/high pole and chase pilot car run.
