May 30, 2018 - Faymonville US customer, DeMase Trucking & Rigging moved recently this historical plane with a 3-axle double drop trailer from Faymonville. The historical plane is a 1946 Gloucester meteor. The world's first jet fighter that has been used in the end of World War 2. It was 22' wide without the wing tip.

The plane was shipped over from England and DeMase moved it in Virginia from the port to an airport. There the plane will be reassembled and fly to Michigan where it will go in a museum.

The steerable MegaMAX stretch double drop with a drive height of only 13.8” is the lowest stretch in the market and helps to clear even the lowest bridges. The unique king-pin steering on these trailers offers unmatched maneuverability and allowed to access extremely tight areas.

Faymonville is the only European manufacturer in the North American market that uses electric and pneumatic components that are completely DOT approved. For an extra-long life-cycle, the MegaMAX chassis is fully metalized (zinc-plated), which ensures the best corrosion protection available in the market.
