Giant Structures

When it comes to moving giant structures, few moves are as impressive as those that take place at sea. These types of moves require a unique set of techniques and tools as well as careful, detailed planning. In Canada, a team of engineers will attempt to move a gigantic 702-ton ship-loading device from the coast of Vancouver to a small mining island 70 miles away. Meanwhile, off the coast of Virginia, Mega Movers will try to save an endangered island house by loading the entire structure onto a barge and sailing 5 miles to the mainland. But there is little margin for error in this chaotic environment, requiring all of the skill and ingenuity that the movers can muster

Massive Bridges

Bridges move people and cargo daily, but what happens when the bridge itself needs to be moved? In this episode, we see how two very different bridges are moved--using two very different methods. In Missouri, local bridge preservationists attempt to transport a 137-ton railroad bridge right through the heart of downtown Kansas City. And in Iowa, the National Guard rallies to save a 129-year-old bridge using one of the most modern mega-moving tools available: a Chinook Helicopter. Will our Mega Movers succeed in preserving these beloved bridges for future pedestrians to use?

Space Machines

From the Earth to the moon and beyond, NASA has made some of the most spectacular Mega Moves in history. They have the option to transport huge cargo through a route unavailable to most movers: the air. In Florida, the crew of one of the world's most unusual looking airplanes will move a piece of the International Space Station to a facility in Alabama. And in Colorado, NASA will use one of Russia's largest cargo jets to transport sections of the Atlas satellite rocket for an upcoming launch. Do these engineers have the right stuff to get the job done?
