Plane Reclaimers are a company based in St. Athan in Wales which dismantle retired aircraft and recycle the parts. As they say, some parts are reused in other aircraft, repurposed into film sets and recycled into tin cans.
They also sell to the public, which means you can pick up some interesting items that could become talking points in your home. Let’s have a look at some of the things they sell.
At the moment, they have a bunch of items from two ex-British Airways Boeing 747s and a Virgin Atlantic jumbo among others. There are quite a lot of things such as cockpit controls and what not, which is nice. However, quite fun are things like seats! Especially in these pandemic times, you can pretend you’re flying while still at home.
For budding cabin crew, you can get your hands on flight attendants jump seats (also £349.99), and buy yourself the cabin crew safety demo kit (£39.99). That way you can do the whole routine from your home. I think 10 year old me would have been in heaven owning these two things!
In addition to all of that, there are lavatory mirrors from Airbus A320s (£99.99), galley carts (£224.99), seat belt extensions (£19.99), seat markers (£29.99) and a whole lot more. You’d best get yourself off to the Plane Reclaimers web site and check it out.
Just in case you are wondering, I have no affiliation with Plane Reclaimers. I happened to see it referred to earlier and thought it would be worth mentioning. Aviation people and plane geeks would certainly be into getting some of these items, especially if they had flown on the particular aircraft concerned.
Do you own any pieces of aircraft? Is it something you’d consider buying? Thank you for reading and if you have any comments or questions, please leave them below.
