Muriel is being lovingly prepared for “take off” from El Cajon, California on August 8, 2016. She will travel by truck through California on Ca-67 North, Ca-52 West, I-15 North, I-215 North, I-10 East, and then travel through the states of Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas to arrive in Atchison, Kansas on August 12, 2016.
Several stages of preparation have been underway to get Muriel safely loaded and transported across the country. Her wings and several parts already made their travels safely to Atchison via a separate route last week. More photos and a story on that to come. The picture on this post is of Stephanie Boekamp adjusting the prop covers/mittens she fabricated for Muriel for during her travels. Photo is courtesy of Grace McGuire.
Muriel’s fuelage (the main part of her body) will be traveling on her own special route as an oversized load this next week. Stay tuned!
