British Airways Boeing 747-400 in D-Check
« on: August 13, 2012, 10:13:12 AM »
For anyone who has never seen a D-Check, here you go. A D-Check is the most in-depth inspection an airframe will ever undergo. Required every 5-6 years, a D-Check can take up to 40,000 man hours and 2 months to complete.
