Concorde Relocation

The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum

Project Overview

MVN helped transport the Concorde into history, delivering the iconic aircraft from its last touchdown spot at JFK Airport to its new home on the other side of Manhattan Island, aboard the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.

Shepherding a 173,500-pound jetliner with a 84’ wingspan between two busy NYC landmarks takes a little creative engineering and lots of experience navigating the tides, bridges, and channel widths of Jamaica Bay and the Hudson.

MVN designed and implemented a project plan that used multiple barges and tugboats working in unison to securely transport the Concorde and place it safely on the flight deck of the Intrepid, on time and without incident.
