Emirates completes first A380 C-Check.

Posted 21 November 2014 · Add Comment

Emirates Engineering has completed, the largest maintenance check on any aircraft when it handed back the first A380 ever delivered to Emirates Airline after completeing its C hjeck. The aircraft began operations with the Dubai carrier in June 2008.

Emirates said the major overhaul has restored the carrier’s first A380 to "near pristine condition".

A time lapse video shows how the 55 day round-the-clock operation was carried out.

Emirates said it took two teams of highly specialised engineers  to strip the entire interior of the superjumbo to the bare metal hull, inspected and overhauled every single part, and then reassembled the components.

“The entire check is meticulously planned with no room for delays. Grounding an aircraft for such a long time is a tremendous expense,” Emirates VP-base engineering Colin Disspain said.
