Evolution in progress! They can now breathe air, and soon will develop limbs for walking.

Also, that was expensive. Must have been a heck of a ride down, judging from the buckle in the near fuselage

Boing Boing did it better.

Thirteen cars were carrying aircraft components, soybeans and denatured alcohol, while half a dozen were empty. Frost said no alcohol leaked and no soybeans spilled, but three cars with aircraft fuselages went into the river.


Thank God! If those fuselages had had access to that much food then Montana would be swarming with the damn things by now.

*pfft*

737s are for kids

/if you want a real challenge try a river full of 747s
//maybe toss in a couple DC-9s to mix it up

I say leave them, paint them black and sell the tour as mrs. King Kongs dildo collection.
=profit?

It looks to me that the middle one was a breach birth.

They don't make them like they used to.  And they never will.

Hey, free fuselage.

I wonder which Chinese airline will pick up a discount fuselage and when they can expect in in service
 
2014-07-05 09:47:48 PM
A bargain sale on this 737?

Show me the Plane Fax!

From the get-go I always thought the name "Spirit" for an airline was a curse.

If DC-8s were sighted jumping upstream to spawn, maybe Tom Cruise really is a spiritual authority.

Seems familiar I should know that from somewhere but I can't remember.
 
2014-07-05 10:03:46 PM
I'm surprised they left the river open for rafting.

You know, because safety.

I know somebody that is going to have to issue a refund on shipping costs.
 
2014-07-05 10:07:09 PM
Wait. They still make brand new 737's?
 
2014-07-05 10:07:55 PM
Nope, not flying in them, this is all Final Destination, they're going to end back up in that river

Nobody's been able to come up with anything much better, at least not economically. I think there's something like 2,000 orders waiting to be filled as of the last upgrade announcement. Pretty crazy

Then in the Arctic half-light of the canyon, all existence fades to a boeing with my soul and memories and the sounds of the Clark Fork River and a four-count rhythm and the hope that a Boeing fuselage will rise. Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of those rocks are some Boeing fuselage. Under the rocks are the cuss words, and some of the cuss words are theirs. I am haunted by waters.

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks closed the Alberton Gorge section of the Clark Fork River between St. John's and Tarkio Fishing Access Sites so that debris from the derailment can be safely pulled from the river.
St. John's, Cyr Bridge, Triple Bridge, Ralph's Takeout and Tarkio access sites are all closed. The river and access site will reopen as soon as cleanup concludes.

Looks like maybe 2,003 orders now.

Tarkio was a band that had some pretty good music.

I've flown the 737 - you can't really crash one unless you are trying.

That's sort of surprising, to me anyway. So it's kind off like the Impala of the aviation world?

I spent a week in Vail a few weeks ago. Even Gore Creek was a river. Free condo on the creek for 4 days. Looked up at a 737 and didn't care where it was headed. I was in the best of places.

Now that they've fixed that problem with the rudder hydraulic valve that made it go full reverse with no warning...

Why would you try to crash a 737? Also,  United Airlines Flight 585 and  USAir Flight 427 beg to differ.

Full difficulty: Eskimo roll in a 737.

Brings a whole new meaning to whitewater tubing.

Really irritates me when the rafters/canoers throw their empty aluminum cans in the river.

/cue the crying Native American.

FTFY.

Radioactive Ass: Wait. They still make brand new 737's?


Yes. It's apparently a good design considering how long it has been around. I mean it's a shortened wings and fuselage 707
 
2014-07-05 10:54:09 PM
Oh sure, the FAA is all up in arms about amateur drones flying above 400ft but where is their outrage when the "pros" try to fly 737's below river level?

And not to worry, in the event of an unlikely water landing your seat bottom may be used as flotation.
 
2014-07-05 10:54:28 PM
So how does Boeing deal with that? Do they write them off via insurance, or hold the transport company liable and let them do it? Depends on the transport contract, I would guess.
 
2014-07-05 11:04:11 PM
My commute used to take me through the Ballmer Rail Yard on the bike path through there and I'd see these aircraft fuselages on railroad cars there quite regularly, so I'm getting a kick.

/ Ballz!

Here's what should have happened to them, and some nice close-ups of intact fuselages for reference, sorry for the Daily Fail link, but good pics.
