I need to store a damaged aircraft away rather than leave it exposed to the weather and elements on a tie-down at an airport. It is a Cessna 172. If I remove the wings and horizontal stabilizer (from the tail), I can fit all lengthwise into a 40 foot shipping container.
However the span of the landing gear is just over 8 feet and won't allow fitting width-wise into a standard container. I suppose the landing gear can also be removed, but not desirable. Are there extra-wide containers suitable for storing small aircraft?
