Available with short notice, Boeing 747 N4712U underwent scrapping at Glasgow Prestwick airport. a deal was made to save the upper deck section and position it to the North East Land Sea and Air museum in Sunderland. A former United airlines and PAN AM bird, it has a heap of history with it. The cockpit section will be restored for people to visit and a decision on the remaining area will be made next year. I believe this to be the 5th oldest 747 in existense, and the only 747 available for public viewing in the UK.
After a phone call from BBC Topgear Magazine editor (now presenter of the US show) Tom Ford, i became involved in this project. I was tasked to build a roof box to hangar a pair of prototype camera drones. The twiat was it had to be built from an actual wing. After a tight deadline of 3 weeks, the build was completed, fitted to the truck and was then put on the Mitsubishi Motors stand at the Geneva motor show
After being tasked to build a summerhouse from a former section of aircraft, Plum pictures became involved and have featured the build as part of TV show 'George Clarkes amazing spaces season 7'. with a 6 month build deadline to make the edit, a lot of sleepless nights and engineering obstacles were overcome to deliver, on time. Keep eyes on the series, mid jan 2018
