I work for maxim crane out of the signal hill, California branch. im a crane operator. not the kind you see in harbors, but the ones you see going down the highway. we move them, build them up, lift stuff up, set it down, and then break the cranes down and on to the next job. in southern California, I built the Bass Pro shop and the citizens business bank arena. multiple schools in the LA county and a ton of other stuff involving cranes. I wasn't there during the lift (I was in Canada hunting bears) but I put the crane together that lifted off the space shuttle that came into LAX. been doing this for almost ten years now. right out of high school.
