    On Thursday around 4 PM, the Montana Rail Link train carrying 737 components including fuselages was traveling from Kansas to Washington when it derailed sending millions of dollars worth of Boeing 737 fuselages down the side of a mountain into the Lower Clark Fork River.

    Here’s a first hand video and pictures from rafters going down the river in the aftermath of the derailment.


    In the video you can see how there are several fuselages actually sitting in the river while others are up on the bank with significant damage to the nose and fuselage sections. You can also see the train up the bank near the tracks. Its reported that 19 cars derailed, of which 3 were carrying 737 components.

    Its hard to imagine how some of these fuselages will be repaired. Thankfully no one was hurt in the accident. You can read more details on the accident here.
