The UKs Channel 4 television station uses a signature broadcast clip of a landscape, which unexpectedly reveals a giant ‘4’ in the scene.

One such clip shows a sweeping view of an aircraft boneyard in the dry south-west of the USA.

This area set aside for scores of surplus military and civilian aircraft may be one of the world’s largest reuse and recycling yards.

Dave Hall and business partner Donovan Fell excel at the art of reuse and recycling.  They set-up MotoArt to create eye-catching and alluring office and home furniture made from aircraft parts sourced at an aircraft boneyard.
