The Boeing 747 AKA the Jumbo Jet. Explore the underbelly of the machine as it gets a complete strip down and is intricately examined for safety and quality by a team of 200 highly skilled engineers.
Episode 2 – The last of of Britain’s off-shore rigs in one of the most productive gas fields. 2,500 tones of steel, 15 miles of pipe work. Now it’s to be demolished, a feat of engineering work. Watch as this giant is brought to its knees.
Episode 3 – 32,000 tones of steel. 7 decks, each the length of a football pitch. 4 engines, burning 2500 liters of fuel an hour. One massive feat of engineering. The North Sea Ferry. For 25 years this metal monster has been on the ocean, but now, it’s been taken out for the biggest overhaul of its life. Join us as we explore the underbelly as it’s stripped down to its core.
