Does anyone know what happened to the following Convair 880 planes:

1) MSNs 6, 8, 15, 19, 20, 22, 23, 24, 32, 35, 36, & 40 were stored in Mojave for
years by the Torco Oil Company. Recently I heard that they were being scrapped,
and that none were left. Were all 12 planes scrapped?

2) MSNs 3 and 13 were sent to the FAA fire safety branch. Does that mean they
will be burned or used as fire trainers? Will these 2 planes ever fly again?

3) I also heard that the following were tored: MSNs 55, 62, 18, 34 and 52.
Were any of thee scrapped yet? Are any airworthy?

Thanks.

Hi!

I asked the same question some time ago about the mojave Convairs. I really hope they are not scrapped. I´d like to know too what is the current status of them and is this scrapping rumour true or false. Thanks!

Antti
