Timelapse Video Puts You Aboard The Benjamin Franklin As it Docks in Seattle

Want to see what it was like for the 200,000-ton ship to arrive in Elliott Bay?

Monday, the biggest ship to ever dock in North America showed up in Puget Sound and docked in Seattle for 24 hours. We were all a bunch of a slack-jawed yokels watching the 200,000-ton CMA CGM Benjamin Franklin move into the Port of Seattle, unload, load back up and then head on out to sea. But did any of us think about what it all must've looked like for the Benny Frank?

Now you get a chance to see thanks to this timelapse video of the ship's arrival:
