ANA’s maintenance factory visit

I had a chance to visit the maintenance factory of ANA at Osaka Itami Airport with the Rotary club. We visited three factories, which maintain planes B767, A320, and B777 to see the maintenance carried out by the general mechanic, re-painting and the checking of all parts of the airplane. They say that it takes several months and the cost of maintenance is approximately 100,000,000 yen, excluding the cost of parts or replacement parts. As normally these factories are not opened to the public, we were so lucky to have an opportunity to inspect them and take photos.
