(N-R staff)  McMinnville's Highway 18 bypass will be closed from 5 to 6 a.m. on Sunday, June 9 so Evergreen International can tow a Boeing 747 cargo plane across the highway to the museum.

The plane landed Saturday. Before landing, the plane did a flyby, perhaps to get a good look at the runway, as shown in this video

The jet is tentatively scheduled to go on display in front of the museum, according to Larry Wood, executive director of the museum.
