Updates on the campaign to rescue and relocate two Boeing 737-200 in Perth Western Australia

Engine One

Sunday, October 22, 2017

The JT8D-15A is an axial flow front turbofan engine having a 13 stage split compressor, a nine can (can−annular) combustion chamber and a split four stage reaction−impulse turbine.
The engine is equipped with a full length annular fan discharge duct. Producing 15,500 lbs (7,030 Kg) of thrust each, making them capable of lifting 52 Tonnes of 737 into the air, with lots of noise and smoke.

Lovely stuff!

Despite being the responsible brute force of the aircraft the engine came away surprisingly easy.

Over 6m long, this is going to look impressive on the back of a truck!

Three more to go...

Volunteers Morning 4

Sunday, October 01, 2017

Our hard working volunteers making thing happen.
Successful lowering of the vertical stabiliser from VH-OZU. We now have all vertical and horizontal stabilizers safely on the ground.

Thousands of screws have been removed to date just to access the main structure of the aircraft, here we have the wing to fuselage cowling finally giving in to the gentle persuasion of our volunteers.
The Bees are back. A new swarm of bees descended on the recently removed tail and decided to call it home. Taking up residence in what remains of the honeycomb.
