    Default Boeing 747 and a few other planes (permission visit)


    A few weeks back i emailed a air field to see if i could get permission to go on the breakers yard and i was very shocked to get a email back within a day to say we could go so me and my friend mate the long trip up there which worth it was expecting to go up there and be told we was only aloud outside shots but i was wrong the person who was taing us around let us on probly 10 of of the 12 planes the other two just basically being shells. ive never been on a 747 so i was very excited and was in for some luck as i managed to go on 4 that day in a way it was very sad knowing they were reited and probly dont exsit now on one of the 747 i picked up a exit sign to look at and our guid said i could have it which i was well chuffed with they also gave us blankets in the new packagen which would of been given to the passenger a great day and one i well never forget sorry that they are not really abandoned but i think they will bring alot of intrest on this forum

    Very nice, they seem to be doing a lot more business there recently. It used to be one or two planes at a time.

    I've delivered aircraft to the breakers myself. It's a very surreal feeling flying one on its last flight. It's empty, light, and the performance is spectacular. However, that final approach and landing have a sadness. Just before I retired, I flew an old 737/400 to a dissmantlers. It was an aircraft I knew well, having flown it countless times. I know it sounds rather pathetic, but it was like watching an old friend die. Great shots, and thank you for doing this.
    A glooming peace, this morning with it brings. The sun for sorrow dare not show its face

    I was thinking the same, most people feel that about their cars.

    Nice thread dude! Wow it would cool to turn one of those planes into an awesome house!

    Pilot, was fascinating going through the emotions you describe as you land the plane for the last time, what a crazy moment.
