UPDATE - Tuesday, July 8, 7:00 a.m.
On Monday, KGVO News reached out to the Boeing Corporation in Renton, Washington regarding the potential damage done to aircraft fuselages that slid down a rocky embankment into the Clark Fork River. We received this response from Boeing spokesperson Lynn Steinberg..
"A team of experts from Boeing and Spirit Aerosystems continues to assess damage to six 737 fuselages resulting from the July 3 train derailment near Rivulet, Montana. Once we have completed our assessment of damages and determined our next course of action, we will decide what to do with the fuselages.
Cars involved in the derailment carrying assemblies for the 777 and 747 have been inspected and their content appears undamaged. They will be shipped to the Boeing final assembly plant in Everett, arriving over the next several days.
The train was in-route from Spirit Aerosystems in Wichita, Kansas to the Boeing final assembly plant in Renton, Washington."
UPDATE- Montana Rail Link crews are slowly but surely removing the massive aircraft fuselages that sled down a steep embankment into the Clark Fork River after last Thursday's train derailment.
