It has been here over 6 months (at a current parking charge of about GBP15000.00) and has apparantly been sold for parts. From what I can gather the damage means there is no way she will ever fly again (as an airframe anyway).
I do not know if they will dismantle here at BHX or remove to elsewhere.

Quoting Dc10bhx (Reply 1): I do not know if they will dismantle here at BHX or remove to elsewhere.
Would be interesting to see that being removed elsewhere for dismantling! Maybe the reason its been left is because it would cost more to move it than to leave it?
It makes sense to sell it for parts, although I still wonder why its taking so long. I would have thought there would be a reasonable market for B737 parts and even if there isn't, TNT could surely use it for spares?
