The frame is at this present minute in the process of being taken apart bit by bit. I saw a flat bed vehicle take away the engine cowlings about two weeks ago. The nose (radome) has already gone. There are no markings on the aircraft whatsoever (just lots of white paint). There is a vehicle next to the aircraft that arrives each morning and leaves each evening belonging to a salvage company. I can only imagiine that they are removing any and all interior (cockpit) fittings as possible and decommisioning the rest of the aircraft before the major league dismantling takes place.
