The stories behind big breakdowns
Where do aeroplanes go to die? What happens to them when they can’t fly anymore? In an unassuming corner of Britain lies one of the world’s busiest yards for aircraft end-of-life services. Here, we’ll find dozens of these retired relics of the sky – and the people charged with breaking them down.
With exclusive access to the day-to-day running of this bustling base, cameras capture the scenes as the team dismantles and breathes new life into these mammoth machines. Along the way, we examine their ground-breaking engineering and uncover the stories and secrets they store with them.
