Hauling jet engine compressor fan blades. wow

At work at salt lake international, i was asked to carry a compressor from a CFM-56 jet engine off a Boeing 737.
There was only one, and it was boxed up, but it took up all my bed, and weighed the truck down pretty good.
But she did great, this was very rare that this happens, as these are usually carried by certain trucks, but it was urgent and unexpected.

The point being here, it was just awesome to carry such an expensive important part of something in my little 88 Ranger.
And i would have put up pics, but when your at work, it's rare that you'll have your camera with you.

I think you guys are thinking a compressor is much bigger than it is.
They are no bigger than a regular home tv, and only weight like 310 pounds.

It's just the packaging, it makes it bigger than it is.

Yeah, but that 310 lb load probably cost close to a half million. Those compressors ain't cheap. LR
