737: The Next Generation June 28, 2006Posted by gordonwatts in physics life, travel.
So, how big is a Boeing 737? Well, not really that big after all. At least, if you don’t have wings attached (admittedly necessary to keep nerves of the passengers calm if not for other things). My bike ride home from UW takes me through a few train yards. On Friday I saw two 737 fuselages on train cars. They fit perfectly. I could have walked up and touched them had I been braver. Instead I just took a few pictures from a distance.
