The NASA Orion Space Capsule Takes to the Air Again

Maxim was hired by a local contractor to lift and place the NASA Orion Space Capsule onto a display at the Discovery Green Park in Houston, TX. The display was created as part of the exhibit’s upcoming Super bowl 51 event, and was completed at night due to traffic and pedestrian congestion downtown. The crew for the job consisted of Maxim’s operators Arnold Munoz and Chris Herrera, driver Shaun Sexton, crane specialist Frank Shaw, and safety representative Ken Eddelman.”Maxim was happy to be involved in the project and everybody worked together to make sure all possible safety precautions were taken,” stated Shaw.
