UK Boeing 747 300 Big old Russian bird

Recommended Posts

Hazar! I remembered my password.... only took six months.. to be fair I could have just re-set it but wheres the challenge in that!  :D

 

Had a work related call here to look at some big mesters construction plant early this fine sunny Sunday morning and decided to go for a cheeky meander around the airfield afterwards after spotting a Boeing Jet dismantler is also based on the site!

 

Theres a large cluster of 747’s in the bottom corner in various states of disassembly right outside the company’s hanger but this 747-300 was sat a bit further out.  Looks like some sort of race thing had been going off yesterday as there were various people cleaning stuff up and packing away, a bit of duck and cover and I found myself on board the big old Russian bird with the aircraft all to myself.

 

Google says it belonged to Japan Asia Airlines for 20 years then sold to a Russian company in 2007.  Made its last flight out of Russia to England in October 2012 where it awaits having its wings clipped at the hands of the dismantlers with the rest of the planes on site.  Seems fairly complete apart being hotter inside than a microwaved Ginsters steak bake and various fixtures and fittings just falling apart.

WOW! The black and white really adds dimension to those pics, they are awesome! Pic 15 & 17 are not showing up this end mate. Don't know if you have changed the privacy or setting on it on Flickr? 

 

Let me know and I can edit or delete for you. 

 

Good news on the password too :D

      What's left of the south marston hotel, remains an empty, scorched shell. Not much to see on this one, and I am way to late but hey, it still provides an eerie vibe. And the photos came out pretty good too. Thanks,

      Predannack opened in 1941 as an RAF base, but today is the satellite airfield to RNAS Culdrose - it is a restricted MOD site and an active airfield used daily for flying training and also provides our Fire Fighting training facility. The area is heavily utilised by Culdrose helicopter squadrons, light fixed wing aircraft and, on an occasional basis by other aircraft types including jet aircraft, for a variety of reasons. Predominantly crews are involved in intensive training sorties involving a high cockpit workload. On average there is in excess of 2000 aircraft moves a month at the unit. The airfield is also used by the Fire Training School for live fire fighting and rescue instruction/exercises and there is also a rifle range at Predannack which is frequently used for live weapon firings. Additionally the airfield is used for a variety of additional tasks when the Control Tower is unmanned e.g. gliding.

      After hearing about the permanent closure of this well known super store giant, we felt like a part of our childhood was gone forever.
      In the store we visited, we found the names of those loyal workers written on the wall with one of those people having  worked there for 20 years,
      but unfortunately we couldn't go back and get a photo due to my camera running out of juice.
      But all is not lost as there is a full video on my friend's youtube channel so check it out!

      Here are the best photos we managed to get, thanks for looking.
