Let's Bury the Jumbo Boeing 747!

I was a Boeing

The attached article by the Financial Times includes entertaining information about the crap we are going to bury. Did you know that it's more than 75 tonnes of aluminium?

This is about 4.2 Mio. empty cans of beer.

Thanks for the hint, Marco Hubeli.

Let's Bury the Jumbo Boeing 747!

This is Al, aircraft dealer, Bangkok

Long time ago, when BTJ wasn't born yet, we tried to find somebody who sells a Boeing 747. During our research we met Al Carpenter, an aircraft dealer from Bankok. You can check our earlier conversation here.

We contacted Al the other day. We want to visit him in Bankok to get our first piece of a real Jumbo-Jet and bring it to Zurich, Switerland. Zest for action, you know...

Now, we finally have a picture of Al!

I called aircraft dealer Al - Let's Bury the Jumbo Boeing 747!

Today I called Al the aircraft dealer. Al is an american living in Bankok. I met him while I was researching where to buy a Jumbo-Jet (see e-mails). This was some time ago and I wanted to speak to him and to ask about the actua state of affairs. The quality of the audio recording is pretty bad since the internet transmission was weak. But listen by yourself.  


To find out how to order a Jumbo-Jet I spent very much time. It's not easy, especially If you start with: "Hello, I saw you're offering a Boeing 747. I want to bury it!"

Finally I met Al Carpenter, an aircraft dealer located in Bankok. He gave me all the information about how to get a Jumbo-Jet. He is waiting for the order.

Read this story and find out more about the very beginning of how to order a Jumbo-Jet Boeing 747.


To transport a Jumbo we have 2 options: airway or shipping. To have an idea of the corresponding costs I have contacted our aircraft dealer Al, SR Technics (airway) and DHL (shipping). Here the e-mails of the latter. Topic is the shipping cost from Tucson Arizona, USA to Zurich, Switzerland (DHL). The correspondence was in German, but its easy to spot the basic information.
