Boeing 737 fuselage on a trailer makes its way through Thurston County

A 125 foot long Boeing plane fuselage (and that doesn’t even include the truck and trailer) made its way through Yelm, Tumwater, Rochester, and rural Thurston County on its way to southern California early Friday morning.

The fuselage was taken from Yelm, down Yelm Hwy to Henderson Boulevard, through several roundabouts and tight turns. It then turned onto Old Hwy 99, 88th Ave, and Littlerock Road until it got to Rochester, where it continued south on Old 99.

Traffic was slightly affected, and the only damage done was one slightly bent sign at a roundabout on Yelm Hwy.

The State Patrol, Thurston County Sheriff’s Office, Thurston County Roads, and Tumwater Public Works assisted with this event.
