About Plane reclaimers

Based in St Athan, just outside of Cardiff airport, we specialise in the repurposing and upcycling of authentic aircraft parts. We breathe new life into retired components, transforming them into extraordinary pieces of art and history to be appreciated by future generations. Each item in our collection tells a story – from the rivets of a retired aircraft wing to the dials of a decommissioned cockpit. We are dedicated to preserving the heritage of aviation while championing environmental responsibility.

Repurpose with a PURPOSE

Repurposing plane parts not only breathes new life into retired aircraft components but also contributes to sustainable practices by reducing waste and promoting a circular economy.

How we’re Making a Difference

Reuse, Repurpose, Recycle

Our Reuse-Repurpose-Recycle mission is at the heart of everything we do. Whether it’s providing core material to support with education and training, or repurposing raw aircraft parts to create beautiful pieces of art and furniture, we are dedicated to reducing the environmental impact associated with aircraft disposal.

Passionate Team

Plane Reclaimers is made up of a passionate team of aircraft mechanics and craftspeople who all share a combined love for aviation and sustainability. We are more than just purveyors of aircraft memorabilia; we are storytellers, weaving the rich narratives of flight into every handcrafted piece. Our mission is rooted in the belief that the wings of the past can continue to soar in the present.

A Piece of History

Each piece of aircraft memorabilia tells its own story. Every purchase ensures the memory and legacy of aviation lives on in homes, offices and training facilities all over the world for generations to come.

Capturing Memories

Aircraft memorabilia allows you to capture and hold on to the memories, emotions and experiences associated with aviation. Whether displayed in homes, offices, or aviation museums, these items serve as touchstones that transport individuals back to moments in time, fostering a deep and lasting connection with the world of flight.

A little about our history

Plane Reclaimers airs on TV

26th of May 2020 was where it all began… Plane Reclaimers first aired on TV. Monster films spent approximately 10 months at ecube’s disassembly facility in St Athan, South Wales. The TV crew captured the fascinating world of aircraft disassembly, and that’s how Plane Reclaimers was born… Fast forward three years and our customers have helped to preserve more than 16,450 aircraft parts in homes all over the world. It doesn’t just stop there, our material serves as invaluable resources for education and training facilities, fostering an immersive and practical learning environment. Some unique pieces of aviation have even made their way onto TV & film sets. We continue to embark on our mission of preserving aviation and contributing to a greener future. The sky really is the limit.
