The crew travels to the ends of the Earth - and risks everything - to relocate some priceless, massive artifacts of aviation history.
- The ultimate in heavy lifting.
- Engineers are put to the test relocating everything from 19th century churches to massive factories.
- Downed warplanes can get stuck in the damnedest places. MEGA MOVERS goes and gets them!
If you're the type who can't leave anything behind, you may have to call in the MEGA MOVERS.
Whether it's a 19th century church, a railroad bridge or an entire beach there's nothing our experts can't relocate. Of course, when it comes time to lift a structure from its foundations and head down the road (at a fraction of a mile an hour), every creak and groan can provide a vital clue, and a mistake of an inch could spell disaster.
Journey to the most exotic spots on the planet, where environment and isolation compound every challenge, to recover and relocate delicate aircraft.
These examples of EXTREME AIRCRAFT RECOVERY test the absolute limits of the MEGA MOVERS' determination and ability.
The crew risks their lives to salvage four World War II aircraft. Join the team as a P-38 is freed from its tomb 260 feet below a glacier, a Nazi Focke-Wulf 190 is recovered from the floor of the frigid North Sea and a B-24 is hauled down towering cliffs on a remote island.
Sadly, on another remote project, the life of a crew member is claimed while recovering a rare P-61 "Black Widow" in a snake-infested jungle.
Fasten your seatbelts for this intense episode of MEGA MOVERS!
