I have been to MCI twice in the past month and taxiing past the AA(old TWA)hanger, I noticed four 767's, with the names painted off and the tails clean(no logo). You can see AA stripes along the fuselege but cannot make out the N numbers. I have been told that when you see the names painted off planes its by request of insurance companies. Either the planes are no longer owned by the airline or the insurance is at the bare minimum.
Does anyone at MCI know the story behind the four 767's parked outside the hanger there?
If two people agree on EVERYTHING, then one isn't necessary.

It's actually an AA (former TWA) overhaul facility -- so either AA is refurbishing the 767s or holding them there in the hopes of doing so. As TIMEAIR mentions, AC is outsourcing some of their work to this facility as well.
I'll be out at MCI twice over the next day or so --- will check it out during daylight and see if I can get a clearer answer.

The articles I have read indicated that AA does a dominate number of maintenance on their 767's and 757's there at the facility. The facility is also going to start doing some work on RJ's for American Eagle.
