MISSOULA, Mont.--- Boeing is deciding what to do with six newly manufactured commercial airplane bodies that fell off a train in a derailment in western Montana, including three that slid down a steep riverbank.
Boeing spokeswoman Dina Weiss said Monday experts from Boeing Co. and Spirit Aerosystems, which built the fuselages, are at the site.
She said in a statement some Boeing 777 and 747 airplane parts appear undamaged after Thursday's derailment and will be shipped to the company's Everett, Washington, assembly plant.
The derailment sent three 737 fuselages down an embankment of the Clark Fork River and knocked three others from the train.
Crews are working to hoist the fuselages from the river about 50 miles west of Missoula. Montana Rail link spokeswoman Lynda Frost has said it could take until Tuesday to remove all three.
