Whatever happened to DL's ship N728DA? I know she was given to the Flying Hospital's to be parted out, but has she already been cut up, or is she still out at VCV. I was on the flight from ATL - VCV and it was really sad to see her go.

Thats a good question. I was on her last revenue flight, 1949/31Jul MCO-ATL. I think that she probably went to the Flying Hospital's base airport and will be used as needed, such as some parts here, some parts there, etc. I guess its better to meet your end that way than at the scrapers torch and guillotine. Would love to see her flying still, though. Some DL TriStars still are.
