Utilizing a Liebherr LTM 1070-4.2 mobile hydraulic crane, Northwest Crane Service team members worked diligently at the 45th Infantry Division Museum in Oklahoma City, OK readying antique war aircrafts for transport. The compact size of the LTM 1070-4.2 made it ideal for the tight space requirements needed to maneuver the outdoor exhibit.
Northwest Crane Service worked closely with Whisler Aviation, an aircraft transportation company, to carefully pick each aircraft and precisely swing it to the load out area. The antique aircrafts required specialized rigging. The Northwest team used synthetic nylon endless slings in order not to damage any of the museum’s delicate artifacts. All of the aircrafts will be transported to a facility in Newcastle, OK where they will be refurbished before being placed back in the exhibit.
