What Varig 777?

If you're inquiring about ex-PP-VRD (LN 19) - for the thousandth time - it was flown to ARG back in December 2006 for part-out and is currently being scrapped.

The Peter Max scheme no longer exists on N77014 but the plane itself remains active in the standard CO livery. G-YMMM has been written off and will never fly again. Its landing incident is being investigated at LHR which is where its remains reside.

Hop to it, fly for life!

I flew the "Ghost of Peter Max" a couple of weeks ago from TLV. She is now in the standard CO white livery (hence the 'ghost' of Peter Max). She has been re-modeled with the larger PTVs and lavatories (the one small lav in BF was removed) and very nice 15" wide aspect PTVs in business first. She still had that "new plane" smell. They must also have added some insulation to her as she was much more quiet that last time I flew with her.

It's a beat up heap sitting on support logs at LHR never to fly again.

Not really... If it's an Insurance write-off.., British Airways doesn't have any rights to the plane or its parts anymore and can not remove anything. Also, with planes involved in accidents many parts can not be re-used period and must be scarped.

Haha, good one. I needed a laugh today Big grin

Too bad the aircraft is written off. Talking about aircraft write-offs, what will happen or has happened to the IB A346 that made the emergency landing in Ecuador? One story is that is will be written off while another story is that it has received new landing gear suggesting it will be repaired....?

Not even the seats? PTV's? Galley Parts? Cabin interior?

I mean, if an airline sends an aircraft to get scrapped, do they actually take out parts of the cabin interior (if it complies with its current product of course) and re-use it or also keep it as spare? Does that happen?

I am talking purely about seats/cabin interior here.... not other spare parts.

Getting scraped and having been in an accident are two different issues.

That seems pretty reasonable to me, since the insurance company wrote a check for the aircraft's value.

However, the insurance company now owns that plane, and it seems to me that they have a right to part out the aircraft as they see fit/as regulations allow.

BA would already have access if they required them to all the 1st generation club world seats from the 744's and they are in the process of upgrading the Inflight entertainment, plus I believe that BA 1st is due for an upgrade, thus there isn't likely to be much of the interior that BA would want.

Oh come on now. You know you are going to miss those endless 'Peter Max' threads, just like you are going to miss those never ending NW DC-9 threads once NW finally parks them.

No, the insurance company owns it. Sure there are lots of parts that can't be salvaged, but I'm pretty sure the insurance company will sell off all the parts that can be legally reused.
