Episode Summary

EDIT
When you're a Mega Mover it's not just the white zone that's used for loading and unloading. The Denver International Airport - by land size it's the largest airport in America. Its enormous Landside Terminal, with its famed white peaked fabric roof, spans a million-and-a-half square feet. Imagine trying to move it someday. Farfetched? Not for a Mega Mover. Using the most heavy-lift equipment ever amassed for a move -- combined with an array of new technology -- the site of this structure cruising through the airport is a true miracle in motion. In New York, at JFK International Airport, part of the famed TWA terminal has to be moved nearly a quarter-mile. The 800-ton triangular-shaped building with its walls of glass is an unwieldy, unevenly distributed load that during the move is at risk of toppling like a house of cards.moreless
