Please find below the article that appeared in the online magazine “Italiavola” on 22 November 2022.
The two images show the activities in progress at Atitech in Naples on a Boeing 737/800 being transformed from a passenger aircraft to a cargo aircraft.
In the first image, you can see some technicians engaged in the execution of the cell reinforcement work. Afterwards, the completion of the shaping of the span created by the removal of part of the fuselage where the loading door will be applied can already be seen. And also the positioning of the hinge on the aircraft side where the door will then be placed.
In the other image you can see the ongoing activities for the reinforcement of the fuselage through the extensive use of rivets.
