All Nippon Airways regularly does maintenance checks to their planes to ensure not only the safety of all their passengers, but also guarantee smooth flights and touchdowns that guarantee passenger satisfaction. This is done inside their own hangar located in Tokyo.

This consistent upkeep of their aircrafts helps engineers of ANA to correctly identify technical problems, which are then corrected before an aircraft is allowed for voyage. This preventive measure is always done despite the fact that ANA’s Boeing 787 planes are one of the most technologically advanced aircrafts in use today.

These huge airplane tires are regularly checked by the crew to safeguard the plane from the possibility of a tire blowing off during liftoff and touchdown.

Every ANA engineer or crew has his/her own toolbox, all of them stowed away in a shelf inside the center. No sharing!

This area holds the larger tools and equipment needed during aircraft maintenance.

Engineers and crew converge to discuss the work needed on the aircraft.

Surprisingly, the ANA Maintenance Center is open to visitors. Groups of school kids are sometimes seen being accompanied by ANA crews within the hangar facilities. Here, a little boy takes a closer look at the nose of an ANA aircraft.
