All it took was the truck making a 19 point turn with the help of a bunch of loaders lifting the back.  Do this several more times (with more trucks) and then pack in the rest of the space with pineapples, bananas, parrots and monkeys and there you go.

    Great picture, Patrick. You probably keep your camera ready at all times (other than flying the plane, of course). I don’t remember if you said that overloading was one of the causes of the plane going down in that crash. It wouldn’t surprise me.

    We keep praying and hope you keep writing.
