Virgin Atlantic shows how to change a 747 wheel

Ever wondered what airlines do when a plane needs a wheel changing? 

Wonder no more, Virgin Atlantic are here to show you exactly how to change a wheel on a Boeing 747...

While a Formula One pit stop can be as quick as 2.5 seconds, it takes a bit longer for Virgin Atlantic's team to make the change - about half an hour to change the wheel of a Boeing 747. But the team are highly skilled and it has to be done in a very methodical way. And anyway, they're not in a race!
