OT: A wing just drove by my office

I happened to look out my office a few minutes ago, and noticed a 3 vehicle procession driving by on the Queensway. 2 OPP vehicles escorting a Semi with a flatbed. On the flat bed was a wing assembly which took up the length of the flatbed. It was one piece, with a tapered area in the middle of the wing. Not sure about the height, but it seemed a bit big to be a tail assembly. The vehicles where heading east towards Montreal.

Any ideas what I might have seen? Possibly a Bombardier assembly?

Where is your office? I'm at the St Laurent exchange and can see the Queensway from my window.

Based on your username, I'm guessing you work at 4200 Labelle. I'm on the 3rd floor.

I'm just east of downtown and see the wings going by on the Queensway quite regularly. My guess is that they are coming from the Boeing factory in Arnprior. They could be on their way to Bombardier.

That's what I figured, but this was the first time I saw one. Couldn't remember (not be bothered to google) where Bombardier had their manufacturing plants.

Oh no! Two S-branch folks here!

Then again, it's probably better than being in the H-branch.

5th floor, QA

Sounds like there are three of us in here, all S branch so it's not too bad.

I'll drop down and say hello one day.
