Viscount Fuselage

Date: December 2014

Customer: Museum of Flight

The National Museum of Flight, which is based at East Fortune near Edinburgh, is restoring two if its hangars and creating new exhibitions within them.

As a result of this redevelopment, a Viscount Fuselage was to be stored outside for a period of approximately one year.

1) The Task

HITEK-nology Solutions Ltd was approached by the Museum to provide a solution that would allow the fuselage to be stored outside, whilst at the same time being protected from corrosion.

2) Product Used

  • VpCI 126 HP UV Shrink Film
  • VpCI 132 Foam Pads

3) The Solution

VpCI 132 foam pads were placed in and around the fuselage, this included the cockpit and seating areas.

VpCI 126 HP UV Shrink Film was then placed around the fuselage and shrunk into place using a propane powered gas gun.
