AELS is currently working on a Boeing 707. This aircraft, an old NATO Trainer Cargo Aircraft (TCA), flew for the last time to Maastricht. On our YouTube channel you can see some videos of its last landing.
AELS opened a new warehouse this February. The expansion of the warehouse capacity means a solid growth platform for AELS to rely on. Besides double the amount of capacity, AELS also introduced a new track and trace system. The new system allows parts to be stored and found more efficient.
On the 22nd of December around 14:00 the B707-300C with S/N 20199 and Reg. LXN20199 will make its final touchdown at Maastricht Aachen Airport. After landing a section will be donated to the local aircraft mechanic school and the remaining is recycled by AELS.
The Dutch newspaper "de Telegraaf" published an article about AELS in their financial section.
The article is available for download at our download section or you can read the article on the website of de Telegraaf (Dutch).
AELS has been contracted to disassemble and dismantle a 737-500 located in Woensdrecht, the Netherlands. The customer is ITS Infinity Trading, an aircraft parts trader who will recertify and trade the components of this aircraft.
Aircraft Interiors International wrote an article about aircraft interior recycling. Every aircraft contains about 5-10 tons of interior that is currently only suitable for landfill. Derk-Jan van Heerden from AELS talks about the re-use and recycling of interiors.
