Just wondering if there are any pictures of former AC L-1011s or 747-100/200s in Mojave being shredded or broken up.

Most former AC 727s went to Fedex and are still flying but a few were probably broken up. Most DC-9s are still baking in the desert or so it seems.

The engine is the heart of an airplane, but the pilot is its soul.

Just search the database. You´ll find some pictures for sure. I´ve seen more than I like to.

Because every L-1011 Air Canada owned was either leased or sold to another airline, only one, s/n 1047 (C-FTNF), was broken up in Air Canada livery. s/n 1047 was returned from lease by Air Lanka and put back into Air Canada service prior to it being broken up.

Here is a picture of s/n 1047 just prior to its demise.

If you want to see an AC L1011-500 still flying, go to Kinshasa and see Hewa Bora's L1011. Shame that the EU blacklist prevents them from flying into Brussels and Paris like they used to.
