It looks like it is just being kept for spares.

The aircraft is about 15 years old. It's first ten years were with Condor and the last five have been with VIM.

Not sure, but sad to see one of the most beautiful airplanes every produced looking that way.

Some see lines, others see between the lines.

I´d say its a bit young to dismantle this 757 for spares. Its been built in the early 90s.

I'm agree with you!!! And let's go again to fly in the Antonov AN-24 and AN-26 instead the ATR's!!!
