Aircraft graveyard on the cover of Flight International 11-17 Jan as we look at how to recycle old jets

A scene uncommon at airports but frequent at scrapyards–a DC-10 nose upright–is on the cover of this week’s Flight International magazine for our feature article: aviation under pressure to reduce landfill waste from scrapped airliners. The DC-10 is seen as Chateauroux Air Centre in France and photographed by the scrapyard.
