To the right is the back half of a B727 at our Smyrna, Tennessee facility. We receive
the aircraft and remove components that are not suitable for a private residence. The
engines are removed, the landing gear is removed and flight controls that would flutter in
the wind are removed.
The engine pylons on the rear of the
aircraft are also removed. All the openings in the aircraft are permanently closed and
sealed. It takes our full staff two months per aircraft to remove all the unnecessary
components and seal the openings that used to be required for flight.
