A Plane In Pieces

If you remember a post back in June, there was a plane crash at the airport from which I do much of my flying. Well, one of the planes that was damaged on the ground had since been declared a total loss. Hence, along comes the salvage artists. Here they are in action:

Dismantling an airplane for salvage.

As you can see in the photo above, they have the wings off and are lifting the fuselage. It’s a shame because this plane had many years of flying in it. Not anymore. There was some surprising internal damage. Here’s another view.

The plane was disassembled and loaded on a pair of flatbed trucks for transport to the boneyard. No doubt the pieces will be used to repair other planes, which is a good thing. So ends this episode. Remember, always do your checklist, and flying in machines and conditions you can handle.
