A Sad Day for Plane Reclaimers as we Begin Our Final B747 Disassembly

The Aviation industry witnessed a big change as British Airways was forced to bring forward the retirement of its 747 fleet as a consequence of the coronavirus pandemic. The Queen of the Skies quickly became an icon, loved by flyers all over the world for decades, and has flown more than 3.5 billion people – almost half of the world’s population! We have dismantled an impressive total of 17 Boeing 747s, and yesterday we began our final B747, G-BYGD, disassembly.


Aircraft Type: Boeing 747-400

Airline: British Airways
