Cool documentary on 744 D-check

Recommended Posts

As we wait for news on the Queen II, I came across this unique film. There are, of course, numerous 744 related documentaries to be found on YouTube, but this is the first I have seen that covers a D-check in this kind of detail.  The commentary is intelligently done by a pair of mechanical engineers.  Have fun!

Thanks for posting this, Andrew. I was at BA Engineering on the VC-10 and Concorde hangar next door to the 747 and B707 hangar when this used to take place on the -100 and -200 series, at Heathrow. They later moved that repair facility to Cardiff.

Not loading that video. Says 'Error Loading Video'.

You can't view videos from Smithsonian from outside the US as far as I know.
