Right height

Universal Aerial Platforms has supplied two JLG 120s to contractor Steelcraft to support its work on the Virgin Atlantic hangar at Heathrow. To avoid disrupting airport services and appearing on the radar, the contractor had to assemble the roof at ground level and jack it to height.

The 120s were specified for being one of the few selfpropelled machines able to reach the necessary height for working in the roof bay.
