Client Testimonial

March 2013

When it was realized our Boeing 737 had a drained aircraft battery, your crew's ability to improvise and find an aircraft battery in the local community was greatly appreciated. Due to Aircraft Demolition's quick thinking and a tenacious work ethic, the 737-300 static display project was complete success for the Pima Air & Space Museum.
