February 2014 - Aircraft Demolition, LLC preps the NASA Space Shuttle Carrier for final disassembly by the Boeing AOG team. Our crew was called in to drain, sump and vacuum out all remaining fuel from the aircraft fuel tanks. Boeing will remove the wings so that the aircraft can be relocated to the Johnson Space Center for a major public display. Once the 747 arrives at Johnson Space Center the wings will be reattached and the Space Shuttle will be placed back on top of the aircraft.
Janurary 2014 - We just recycled the third-ever delivered Boeing 727-100, N7002U, Serial # 18294. The aircraft was born in 1963 and put to rest forever on Janurary 23, 2014. It was a passenger aircraft used by United Airlines up until the early 1990s then donated to the San Francisco International Airport as a training tool.
The aircraft was replaced by a Boeing 767-300 and was delivered by Aircraft Demolition via ANA (All Nipon Airways).
December 2013 - Aircraft Demolition purchased a Boeing 767-300 from All Nippon Airways (ANA) with delivery of the aircraft at the San Francisco International Airport (SFO). The aircraft will be disassembled and parted out with over 600 parts being removed including the engines and APU. The parts inventory will be removed and recycled for use on other commercial aircraft. Once the disassembly is complete the airframe will be sold to the City of San Francisco and used as a teaching device at the San Francisco International Airport (SFO).
