In June Arrow Air DC-10-10F N68047 overran the runway at Managua, last month Fedex MD-10 N391FE suffered a similar fate at Memphis. Both aircraft appear to be written off, though I´ve not heard anything official in this direction.
Are there any news about the fates of these two old aircraft (which are 33 and 31 years old)?

And what about the AA 767 which had an engine explosion recently?

I'm sure both of these will be stripped of parts and scrapped; the cost of repair is far more than they're worth ...

although, the Fedex MD-10 is still essentially intact, except for the burned left wing ... and the last MD-10 they planted @ MEM had an intact left wing leftover after the fire ...

I'm sure that one was scrapped long ago though ... be cool if they could mix 'n' match and make a working airplane out of the two carcasses.

This was mentioned by an AA employee in another post that it'll be cut up and trucked to the desert for scrapping.

The disc that frisbeed across the belly, buzzsawed through structural members across the lower fuselage (in addition to the burn damage to the left wing, and rear fuselage, and engine damage).

Even if feasible to repair the burn damage, the structural damage is probably too great for it to regain its certificate.

= death of an airplane.  Sad

Thanks for your answer. From the pictures published I doubted very much one of these 3 aircraft would fly again.

I saw the aircraft at MGA. It looks like only the shell is left. Looks pretty sad... Probably gonna be scrapped at Managua...
