RAF Planes Get Annual Clean

These daredevil cleaners suspended themselves XXft in the air – to give these RAF planes their annual dust.

Every January, a team of fearless technicians are suspended from pulleys and harnesses at the RAF Museum in Cosford, Shrops, to give the historic aircraft their yearly spring clean.

Eight planes at the museum are suspended from the building’s roof, meaning their cables also need to be inspected.

The high-level spruce-up usually lasts eight days, with the cleaners using backpack vacuums, microfibre cloths and mops as sprays and liquids could damage the paintwork.
