Anyone watch the episode? It was pretty cool. I've seen them being built but never disassembled.

One question though, does anyone know how much all that scrap metal is worth? They mentioned 50,000 pounds or something of scrap metal is recovered from a 727.

Last time I turned in aerospace alloys to the scrapper I was getting 65cents to 90 cents a pound. The big west coast scrapers may contract a bit better than that but probably average $1.00/lb. The market fluctuates just like other metals...
