Where do aeroplanes go to die? What happens to them after they're done with flying? In an unassuming corner of Wales lies one of the world's busiest yards for aircraft end-of-life services - home to dozens of these retired relics of the sky. With exclusive access to the day-to-day running of this bustling base, our cameras are on the scene as the team dismantle and breathe new life into these mammoth machines. Along the way, we examine their ground-breaking engineering, and undercover the stories and secrets they store with them.

Episode 2

The red carpet is rolled out on the base today in preparation for a very special guest - a 747 Jumbo Jet. This colossal of the sky is a first for the gang – and that brings with it a series of challenges. Appalling weather puts the planes arrival in serious doubt. When she does finally touch down its a David V Goliath like struggle to get the giant iron bird towed into her parking space on the lot. Once parked up the perilous act of draining ten tons of fuel begins, with safety concerns about an improper hose causing fire risk that could see the plane go up in flames.

Episode 1

On the base, the gang anxiously await the touchdown of an AIRBUS A319 from the Middle East. But a flight delay has a serious knock on effect – a buyer is standing by waiting to sign a check for 15 million dollars to repatriate the engines to a new aircraft. But with the plane a no show, is the deal in danger of falling through? When the plane finally makes an appearance it’s a race against the clock to get her engines removed and shipped to their new owner – but not before team leader Sam empties the kitchen galley of a rotting supply of fruit that’s been left on board!
