So, why did Cyprus Airways choose to send this to the boneyard? High cycles?

Someone here said the aircraft was just over 16 years old. It also seems that some of these Airbus aircraft are been cut up relatively young, like some A310s lately. I'd like to know myself what's the logic of scrapping this relatively young plane.

Does anyone know if Aeroturbine will be getting any more aircraft soon for scrapping?

There was an earlier thread about this, but it has little info

http://www.airliners.net/discussions...eral_aviation/read.main/2021875/4/

But I have another question about this picture. In front of the A320 is a UA 735. N926UA. Is this bird also going to be scrapped? Or is it in storage.
Perhaps someone knows.

N774UA,

There are three UA737s and they'll be scrapped. All are already missing plenty of parts. There is also an Aramco VIP DC-8-72, four ex Ansett 762s, a few Air Tran DC-9s all awaiting the scrap man in that space of ramp. Latest to disappear into a pile of rubble was the ex Volar/LTU 757; also the first "good" 757 to be cut up.

Always sad to see planes scrapped. The Aramco DC8 was a regular at AMS mostly for mx. But thanks for the info. Big grin

-DAT was CY's oldest A-320...and had the -A1 engines. There is a very limited market for 320s with -A1 engines (everyone strongly prefers the -A5 for both maintenance and performance reasons). Perhaps it was also due for a heavy check?

I will say that CY always kept their birds in pretty good shape...

Makes me wonder what will happen to -DAU/V/W and -DBA/B/C/D. Maybe they will pick up the newer aircraft from going out of business subsidiary Hellas Jet and retire more of these -A1 examples?
