Arguing with a truck driver is like wrestling with a pig in mud, eventually you realize the pig enjoys it.
They are also going to have this here. It is the 747 Dream Lifter. it is used to carry parts of the new 787 Dreamlimer. Some of it is being built here and the Lifter carries it to Everette, WA. Gonna be a good show this year.

I read somewhere that it is aerodynamically impossible for a helicopter to maintain controlled flight inverted, but there are a very few helicopters that are powerful enough to use momentum to carry them thru the uncontrolled portion and return to controlled flight. It's like those crazy old bi-plane guys when they would climb the plane so hard it'd go into a stall then start to fall out of the sky, but they knew how to recover it, made it look easy, when in reality, they should have went SPLAT!!
