Boeing Family. Airbus Family.The above is an image map, use it to navigate the site. Best viewed at x using any browser. Many of my computers and most of my gas turbines came from scrapyards. I like nothing better than exploring aviation, military, and computer specialised scrapyards, junkyards, and breakers. Some of my favourite British scrapyards are presented here. This is a wonderful place! Not much in the way of gas turbines although a Derwent can be seen in this picturebut an excellent collection of other military surplus.
This is a general scrapyard, but due to its proximity to the RAF base at Kinloss, it got a large amount of military aircraft scrap.
When I was there five years ago they had two big yards, literally piled high with aircraft - Buccaneers, Shackleton bits, missile and engine parts, even a Nimrod simulator! I returned late in '99 to find their main yard All that was left were a few Derwent runway cleaners, pictured to the left. There may be a renaissance, but their best days are behind them I fear. Those who have had the pleasure of meeting the redoubtable Mr.
Spur will not forget him. His yard deals pretty much exclusively with scrap from the East Midlands RAF bases, and as such all kinds of things can turn up. Seems usually to have a lot of stationary engines, generators, and apron equipment, but relatively few gas turbines. Memorable arrivals in recent years have included the principal components of several Matra Martel TV guided air-ship missiles, and a large quantity of Plessy Solent gas turbine starters from Phantoms.
The gate. Couple of big old 'Bloodhound' missiles on the left. Various aircraft at various stages of breaking.
Canberra nose section still intact. Hanningfield metals is near Chelmsford, on the Chelmsford-Billericay road, on the left just a few hundred yards south of the A12 flyover - an industrial estate. Has more general military surplus-type junk, but at times has had high piles of scrap airframes - haven't been there since or so, so unsure of current state of play.
Roger Windley's scrapyard, near Tattershall Lincs. Just outside the village of Woodhall Spa, on the road to Tattershall in Lincolnshire, there's a large car scrapyard - Roger Windley's.
Adjacent to it, guarded by 'private - NO entry! In one corner the nose section sits, looking eerily familiar from those oft-repeated TV news videos.
In this pic it's almost upright, you can see the centre pedestal with throttles in the middle of the image: Visitors are positively NOT welcome - I was welcome enough on my first visit, by my second visit things had changed! This guy had a lot of stuff about - site now closed but I've linked to archive. Nev Martin - Phoenix Aviation, Bruntingthorpe - a museum as much as a scrapyard!
Taken circa. Foreground various engines - Paloustes, Continental units from M1A1 starting carts, and a bunch of Vipers. Still under construction They were an outfit that specialised in breaking up large jet engines for scrap - last time I was there, in or so, they were piled high with Avons.

This field in the heart of Gloucestershire is Europe's largest aeroplane graveyard. Mark Gregory, the founder of Air Salvage International, is responsible for dismantling the unwanted passenger jets into more than 2, parts [for each aircraft]. Mr Gregory's firm has taken apart around commercial aircraft of all types over the last couple of decades.
Mark Gregory, who started his company from his garden shed, now dismantles around 50 to 60 aircraft every year. The company was set up by Mr Gregory 20 years ago and is now the biggest aircraft dismantler in Europe. Mr Gregory, who started the firm from his garden shed, explained: 'The engines and parts are worth more if you take them off than if you try to sell the aircraft as a flying machine.
He said: 'Between 80 and 90 per cent of the value of the aircraft are the engines. If the customer wants we can remove the engine as serviceable and it can then be leased or sold to be used on another aircraft.
Mr Gregory's firm has dismantled some commercial aircraft of all types over the last couple of decades. The team test the aircraft before draining them of fuel and hydraulic fluid, before removing and labelling each re-usable part. Mr Gregory's team sometimes discover unusual items left behind by passengers and crew, such as mobile phones and spare change.
He said: 'There were these packets hidden behind the panel that looked like lots of cassette tapes wrapped in plastic. He said: 'Looking at the packages it had been there for some time, maybe it was taken on board the aircraft and whoever took it on bottled out and stashed it behind the toilet panels.
He added: 'We find lots of coins, we did find a wallet once which we managed to repatriate with the pilot [that was under the captain's seat of a Air New Zealand aircraft].

The United States had manufactured aboutaircraft for the war effort. Of that number, 21, 7. By the U. Foreign Economic Administration began a program to scrap certain obsolete, damaged and surplus military aircraft overseas. Following the war, estimates of the number of excess surplus airplanes ran as high asConsideration was given to storing a substantial number of airplanes, but the realization that the expense to store them was too great Some U.
Most, however, were returned home for storage, sale or scrapping. Within a year of the signing of peace treaties, about 34, airplanes had been moved to 30 locations within the U. The RFC established depots around the country to store and sell surplus aircraft. By the summer ofat least 30 sales-storage depots and 23 sales centers were in operation.
In Novemberit was estimated a total ofaircraft would be transferred as surplus. A study was conducted to determine the most cost effective way to dispose of planes; it was determined that too many man-hours were required to dismantle planes for parts, and the cost for storage areas for the parts was too high.
So the method of "salvage and melt" was adopted. Main components such as engines, armament, instruments and radios were removed from each plane. The remainder of the aircraft was cut into pieces, and pushed in a large furnace, or smelter. Aluminum was the prime metal sought after, melted and poured into ingots for sale and shipping. Airlines procured a number of transport planes, primarily DC-3 and C aircraft, for building up their post-war inventories of commercial airliners.
Others planes were transferred to civilian control, or to the Air Forces of allied countries. A few, such as the "Enola Gay" and "Bockscar" see photo belowwould be preserved for display in museums.
