Dash8 Cockpit and Fuselage 9m
Dash8 Cockpit and Fuselage section 9m in length. It’s ready for use as a flight simulator, glamping pod, caravan, bar or as a super cool home office for example. Really there is no limit to the imagination as to what you could create from a section of fuselage like this, we’ve had discussions with clients about converting this into a play park for example. Body Section made by De Havilland for Flybe who then went into administration. It was a 60+ seat commercial airline for domestic and European short-hall customers.
Here you have one of two main fuselage body sections we have for sale, we have the rest of the plane if you’d like more including the cabin and tail sections. The body section is 6.5m long and approx. 2.5m tall with a hollow interior as most of the electrics and interiors have been stripped out ready for conversion. There are currently no windows or doors included with this section of Dash8 fuselage.
Fuselage body sections are also utilised as a prop for either film or tv companies. The fuselage section could be used as garden art or as an unusual kids climbing frame. We’ve considered making it into a camper van or caravan but similarly it could be cut up into sections of fuselage wall art, the bright white finish is a great colour for a range of project ideas.
– 9000 cm x 2500 cm diameter (leaves a standing height of 2m inside once converted in the main plane pod with reduced height in the cockpit)
– 2-2.5 ton
GB Salvage offer a wide range of plane parts both to be converted and already converted and ready for use. You’ll find a diverse range of parts we’ve sourced from retired planes all across the UK and Europe. We find and buy aeroplane parts with the full intention of turning them into amazing pieces of furniture and lighting. Having only limited space and time we have to part with some great pieces. So here you’ll find components and muddy puddle finds right up to stunning finished furniture.
There’s almost no limit to the imagination when it comes to making use of parts of old planes. These days it’s all about unique and daring ideas and oversized industrial furniture. A few years ago a piece of aircraft fuselage wall art was really only for a board room or reception area, now it’s all the fashion at home. Even Taylor Swift was chopping up a plane in her latest music video.
