I visited Mojave, Ca which is a famous airplane graveyard in the Californian desert. More than 100 planes were stored there. It is end of the line for most planes in the graveyard. I went inside an ex Thai Airways B747-400 to take a look at the interior. Much to my surprise, the interior was kept intact. Then I step inside an ex-Qantas B747 and found my way to walk on the 747 wing! I could almost touch the winglet!
Then we drove to Victorville and met up with airplane scraper Huy, Huy gave us a tour and explain how they torn down airplanes using excavator. The useful parts such as engines, avionics and interior are usually stripped out for sale . We went inside an ex United B747-400 and ex Singapore/VIM B777-200 to take a look.
Talaat Captan, owner of Air Hollywood and Anthony Toth, co-owner of Pan Am Experience appeared in this video as tour guide of the airplane graveyard storage.
