There are about six million parts inside a 747-400 and they cost $250 million when new. We are happy to work with you to get you the parts that you need for any and all of your aviation related projects. In the past, we have seen retired 747 air-frames converted into restaurants, hotels and even apartments for full time living. Also the huge wings were used as roofs. Some of our parts are also used to create modern aviation furniture and large scale art projects.
Due to the highest standards of construction of these air-frames along with their lifelong servicing and maintenance, it is hard to find a section of the plane that shows any kind of wear and tear. The fuselage itself is insulated better than any regular construction project and is much easier and lighter than steel or wood due to the lightweight aluminum.
