Shane Handford (left) and Chad Poston work on parting out an airplane at Kingman Airline Services. The company is taking 90 percent of the plane’s body weight in parts and shipping them to a company in Russia. The remainder will be sold to a local company for scrap. The company parts out about five airplanes a year.
