About the Srilankan aircraft , those were not accidents but rather delibarately destroyed by Liberation Tigers at CMB.
I think there are pictures of the EY A346 accident in TLS during testing. Was the airframe written off or since it was in TLS it was repaired and delivered ?

What happened to the Malaysian A330-300 airframe which was damaged by leaking chemicals within the cargo hold? I don't believe I've ever seen any pictures of it. The damage must have been pretty severe to be completely written off.
Compensation of $65 million was paid to the airline but I'm presuming they could salvage many parts off the aircraft and use them for spares and repairs, unless an insurance company took the airframe, making things more complicated.
I found a picture within the database of the mentioned aircraft in the background, sitting engineless on the tarmac.

What happened to that EY A340-600? What was useable as-is in other aircraft, what was recycled, and what was scrapped? I would guess that the engines/APU and most of the seats were reusable...anything else?
