Drivers were surprised to see a supersonic jet bomber fuselage heading up Interstate 5 overnight last weekend. Five Washington State Patrol vehicles traveled with the Boeing-owned B-1 Bomber fuselage, which measured 131 feet long, more than 29 feet wide and 15 feet high. In some spots of I-5, the super load occupied all travel lanes. According to Washington State Department of Transportation officials, the bomber’s journey began shortly after 11:30 p.m. Friday, leaving Portland International Airport on I-205 to I-5 in Vancouver and on to Nisqually Weigh Station, just north of Olympia. On Sunday, the load, traveling close to 30 miles per hour, again headed north on I-5 to Boeing Field in Seattle.
