PHOTO OF THE DAY: 777X parts arrive in oversize containers at Port Everett

Last night, the Port of Everett welcomed the first oversized containers carrying parts for the new 777X. Instead of offloading at Pacific Terminal, the port's primary container facility, the 777X parts were offloaded at Pier 1 using a mobile harbour crane rated to handle the heavier, larger aerospace containers now arriving in Everett.
