Plane Wash

Tuesday, 13th January 2009 by

Have you ever wondered how they get planes clean? Well at Heathrow we can see the plane cleaning crews hard at work, but for some reason it's the wet outlines of absent planes that are the most interesting.

Anyone who has read our book would already know that there's just one automatic plane wash in the whole world - and we can see it clearly at Tokyo's International airport.

Since we first wrote about Tokyo's plane wash, Street View has given us another view of the structure - which from this angle looks like a big plane made from scaffolding!

See our previous post on The Langoliers.
