Boeing 747 lifting in place in extreme wind conditions

This Boeing 747 is trying to take off on its own without engines! the Jumbo is sitting in a boneyard in Mojave, CA and is in the process of being dismantled.

On May 23rd, 2012 the area experienced extreme winds of 70+ miles per hour and reports of gusts up to 100.

Without the weight of its engines, the slightly tail heavy 747 tries to take to the skies one last time.

The next day the plane was found to have also rotated about 45 degrees from its original position.
