I want to share my experience regarding dismantling of a cargo aircraft Boeing 727.One of my friend called me and asked the favour of doing a critical and adventurous project. After asking the favour, i heard that he wants me to dismantle a aircraft at karachi airport. Next day i visited the aircraft which was like this at that moment After going through in and out in all over the aircraft, i took this adventurous job and compile a team of 7 people including me. Rest the dismantling will be visible in pictures.
Two of three engines dismantled and brought down on the ground. Beautiful piece of engineering it is. Each and every thing is intact and proper after 41 years. proper details and pics will be upload for sharing purpose.
Interesting startDo u hv any prior experience of doing such jobs?What ll b the use of dismantled parts, specially engines?
Woah Cool Project Btw what is the purpose of this project and what will you do after dismantling it?
purpose is to dismantle it and sale it by tearing it apart. a proper dismantled aircraft fetch twice the money you paid to purchase it in scrap.
i dont have any prior experience regarding any work of aircraft. this is the first time for me. it is more like a challenge for me. if succeed in this one then 2-3 more will be facing the same treatment. Dismantled part will be sold according to their market values or vulnerability.
Door's bracket either opened from the bolts if possible or usage of gas cutter made it easy.
Mother of all turbo but i didnt get the purpose of such turbine in the compartment where landing gears rest while in the air during flight. :S
Landing gear and its compartment along with the drag radials on it
Current Situation. View from tail to cockpitInside of Cockpit Tail has been brought to ground for further dismantlingOut side of Cockpit
I maybe wrong I thought u couldn't use second hand parts in commercial aircraft. Each part has to have DNA.
some of the parts including landing gears, hydraulics and engine components can be used in maintenance if they passes the test.rest it will be brought down to the basic composition for any other uses.Aluminium will be melted down and can be used in any industry using aluminium or silver. like wise each and every thing will be used some where.
Very true I wish u the best of luck.
Some resemblance with blown muscles
Main plate. Model info and etc
thats 1 interesting topic on PW ...... btw that turbo ..dam
bro as i had told you before that thing which you are calling a big turbo is an air cycle machine (ACM) is the refrigeration unit of the environmental control system (ECS) used in pressurized gas turbine-powered aircraft It uses bleed air then fed to an air cycle machine unit which regulates the temperature and flow of air into the cabin, keeping the environment comfortable
google it for more info
hmmmm. you are right. but there are turbo like something in engines. the thing in red circle
wowowow.. i wish i could also be part of such team ^_^
Thats really cool being so close to one of the legendary aircraft. is it possible that i can get the plane identification plate!!
