Kennon Products in Sheridan is a company that makes aircraft covers, from general aviation, to military and commercial aviation. Kennon Vice President of Business Development Dale Hall says that last year they received a very unique request.

Hall said that the customer requested the cover because the aircraft is being refurbished and they wanted it protected from dust and bird droppings while it's parked in the hanger. Hall explains that constructing a cover that size was no easy task.

To put things into perspective on just how colossal the airplane is, Hall gives us a few facts about the 747-8.

Hall said he's in the final stages of creating a model of the airplane that will include miniature size cover that was produced by Kennon, and that the model should be on display at the Sheridan County Airport in the next several weeks.
