Cutting and Scrapping a B777 – Inside The Airplane Graveyard

Few months ago, I visited airplane graveyard at Victorville, Southern California Logistics Airport where there were large amount of stored and retired airplane include a white Boeing 777 bought by Air Hollywood.

I am back to see how they cut the cockpit out of this B777. The cockpit cut is needed to bring it to Air Hollywood studio for movie set. It is extremely interesting to see how the worker use chain saw and fork lift to take out the B777 cockpit in just over an hour. It is also interesting to see the bare interior of a B777. However, it is sad to see the plane without the cockpit. End of the line.

Don’t miss the next episode where I followed the cockpit delivery at Air Hollywood. The owner gave me a behind the scenes tour on how Hollywood airplane movies are made inside Air Hollywood studio.
