Countdown to Collision: Airport UK

After snow blankets the airfield, workers must battle winter conditions to turn around a gigantic 747-400 cargo plane in just two hours. Stunning CGI animation explores how seven ingenious inventions will help the airport get the plane back in the air on time. A unique laser-guided docking system helps the pilot park correctly, hydraulic lifting machines haul tonnes of cargo in and out of the hold, a truck with nozzle-loaded boom arms sweeps the runway to melt ice and a radar system gives the air traffic controllers an extra set of eyes to avert disaster. With the weather against them, today, more than ever, the workers of Stansted will depend on these inventions to help them avoid a COUNTDOWN TO COLLISION
