    The primary function of the design engineer is to make things difficult for the fabricator and impossible for the serviceman.

    I know an engineer that works for that company. We used to work at the same company together. Of all the engineers I have ever worked with, I have the most respect for him. Wonder if he had any hand in that job? I'll have to contact him to find out.

    You don't get a chance to see very many UH-1's in that role, much less with anything but a Warbird paint scheme.

    I love the smell of napalm in the morning.....

    That music can be downloaded easily. It's Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries."

    It's Amazon, they can afford the cost of an air lift. Everybody else would be get a few guys from HD with ropes and pull it up the side to save money

    Its neat watching them do air lifts in an urban setting.

    Two years ago parts for a new Digital TV transmitter tower were lifted up to the top of a 34 story office tower in the center of downtown Winnipeg. It was amazing how many streets were closed around the building during the lift. I guess they worry about stuff falling from the staging point to the drop point.

    It pains me to see a building of that size, with that many mechanical units, instead of a more centralized chiller/boiler plant.

    Our Local Amazon did the same thing a year ago. One of the company's i've worked for tried to get them to go with a centralized system but there argument was they just lease there warehouses and didn't want anything permanent. So they installed about the same number of Trane's and did an AirLift. There only sized to keep the building around 90 degrees.

    They are masters of the throw-away economy, so I suppose it makes sense to build throw-away buildings as well.
