VIDEO: Extreme Wind Conditions Lifting A Parked Boeing 747 In Mojave, CA
Share This > A Boeing 747 was sitting in a bone-yard in Mojave, CA waiting to be dismantled and recycled at the end of its useful life. On May 23rd, 2012 the area experienced extreme winds of 70+ miles per hour and reports of gusts up to 100 near the pass due to a low pressure zone. Mike Massee was there to film the event. Without the weight of its engines and with its landing flaps deployed, the slightly tail heavy 747 tries to take to the skies one last time. Watch the video in HD and leave a comment below.
