Kevin McCloud challenges three designers to turn one plane - an Airbus A320 - into hundreds of amazing new products in a giant upcycling experiment.
Their task is to find a new use for every single piece of the plane, leaving only an empty hangar behind them. The office pods and desk lamps, rickshaws and rocking chairs, luggage, storage and even jewellery that they fashion from this fallen giant will prove - in a spectacular and sustainable way - that creativity is a genuine solution to Britain's waste crisis. It's not just the size of this challenge that makes it tough; to master it, the designers need endless ingenuity, patience and the entrepreneurial skills and sales patter to sell their sometimes outlandish creations. It's a transformation on an unprecedented scale and Kevin's largest recycling project to date. If they can pull it off they'll prove that the sky's not the limit.
Written for the use of professional airline pilots in preparation for the check-ride and initial transition training. Terrific resource for Pilots and Simmers alike. …
The ITN Productions-made Terror in the Skies: AirAsia and Beyond details the events of December 28, 2014, when AirAsia flight 8501 and its 155 passengers and seven crew members were lost in a storm 40 minutes into their journey from Indonesia to Singapore. The special reveals “troubling connections” between the accident and 2009′s Air France disaster, and also explores technology designed to prevent such incidents from recurring. The doc will also feature computer-generated animation aimed at breaking down radar data from the final moments of the flight, while meteorologists will use weather data from the day of the accident to look at the effects of the storm on the Airbus A320. Also included in the doc are exclusive interviews with global experts, including legal representative for the victims’ families.
