Lifting a Jet Bridge at Dulles Airport

On Wednesday May 7th, a crew traveled to Dulles Airport for the removal of a 58,000 lb. passenger jet bridge. Using a 110-ton Grove TMS9000E, the 60-foot long bridge was easily removed from the terminal and placed on our Trail King double drop deck stretch trailer.
The rain held off long enough to secure the bridge to the trailer and disassemble the crane. However, the skies opened up as we were escorted across the property to place the bridge at its final location.

Thanks to all of the MWAA employees who made this lift successful. Thanks also to all of the Rent-A-Crane employees who don’t mind playing in the rain.
