The team had to overcome the unacceptable strains on the building that would result from suspending the plane from the ceiling.
They looked at the possibility of running steel cables from the plane to fixings on the building at as wide an angle as possible. This would lessen the strain on the building and result in no structural damage.
However, it soon became apparent that this would result in the aircraft being pulled apart.
The solution was to run a steel beam across the existing iron ribs that vault the ceiling. The beam was made in two parts which meet in the middle and are kept together by compression.
This has allowed the aircraft to be hung safely and with as little strain on the building as possible.
