Plain Parts TOUR

Saturday August 13th



Plain Parts
Retrieval and Specialized Hauling

Plain Parts specializes in retrieval and storage of aircraft, automobiles and industrial equipment. They also sell aircraft parts, and perform other specially designed projects. Their facility and services are used by the NTSB, FAA, attorney firms as well as major insurance companies that cover the automobile, aviation, and workers compensation industries.

The professional Plain Parts team has successfully transported and stored aircraft ranging from a Douglas DC-8 Air Freighter to a home built Midget Mustang. With over 380 retrievals, the professional Plain Parts team has developed specialized equipment and procedures to dismantle and transport items to their final destination.

Saturday, August 13th. Visit to Plain Parts, a business owned by member Dennis James. You might say this is the "CSI" of airplanes, as Dennis retrieves crashed planes, examines them and then reports to whoever needs to know what caused the crash, etc. After a tour and talk, Dennis has kindly offered to provide attendees with hamburger, hot dogs and soft drinks. This should be a very interesting visit - and, as the weather may well still be hot, arrival in an MG is optional. Plain Parts is at 5007 Pacific Avenue, Pleasant Grove, CA 95668.

Important: Please let Lawrie know by August 8th if you plan to attend so we can let Dennis know how many people to expect.
