(January 20, 2003) -- A LBReport.com reader alerted us to a number of cargo-type containers stacked in ELB on the Boeing property, west of Lakewood Blvd. just north of LB Airport. A company spokesman told LBReport.com they will be gone by the end of January...but the company isn't saying who's storing them or why they're being stored in ELB.
The containers are stacked on the southern end of the Boeing properly, the equivalent of a few blocks west of Lakewood Blvd.
They're in several rows and in some cases stacked vertically.
The containers are a sizable distance west of Lakewood Blvd., not easily spotted but not invisible either. View below is from Lakewood Blvd. at Conant St. looking west. Orange row of containers blocks view of additional containers to the west from this angle.
Boeing spokesman John Thom told LBReport.com the containers will be gone by the end of January. He said the company had a storage opportunity but isn't disclosing who's storing them or why they're being stored there.
