Crated or damaged aircraft as flatcar load

How would a crated or damaged aircraft have been secured to the deck
of a flatcar? Here in Dickinson,ND in about 1952/53 a USAF reserve
pilot crash landed a F-84 at the local airport. According to my
father-in-law, whose 1947 Ford pick-up it hit when it went of the end
of the runway, it was dismantled by the Air Force and loaded on a
flatcar and scrapped. He has pictures of the wrecked jet on the
ground, on top of his wrecked pick-up, but not on the train. I
thought this would make an interesting flatcar load.
