You're supposed to get a permit from DOT for hauling wide loads, 
(Greater than about eight feet.) and have police escourt through 
cities. When I checked into it a couple of years ago, I had to 
chuckle when they asked how many tons the item was.

The reality is, most people don't bother and just haul the airframe 
on a trailer in the small hours of the morning when there's very 
little traffic.
