The following 52 Boeing 747-400s (of 694 built) are currently stored, most either temporarily parked or awaiting a new owner. No 744 has been scrapped yet, although a handful (led by ZK-NBS) might face this "natural" fate in the upcoming months. A "wo" means written off, of cause. A few frames in F or LCF-conversion and frames currently being prepared for their new owner are not listed, a questionmark means I´m not sure if this ac is indeed parked. FYI, the firstbuilt and still active 747-400 is ln.696.
Sources: different, but I used airlinerlist as the basis although they made a few mistakes.

The following 122 Boeing 767 (out of 982 built) are either scrapped, permanently withdrawn from use, have crashed or are stored awaiting a new owner. Many of the older frames have been wfu for 5 years or even longer.
A "s" means scrapped, a "m" museum, "wo" written off/crashed, brackets mean the aircraft has been sold/leased but is still stored.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airbus_A330
* On 30 June 1994, an A330 owned by Airbus on a test flight simulating an engine failure on takeoff crashed shortly after take-off from Toulouse, killing all seven on board.[17][18]
* On 15 March 2000, a 6-year-old Malaysia Airlines A330-300 aircraft was severely damaged by corrosive liquids that were being transported in the cargo hold on a passenger flight from Beijing to Kuala Lumpur. The corrosive liquid oxalyl chloride was mistakenly declared as non-toxic solid hydroxyquinoline. 18 canisters of the substance were transported via Kuala Lumpur intended to transit to Chennai. Five airport workers fell ill as they were unloading baggage from the aircraft at Kuala Lumpur after some of the canisters had leaked and chemicals spilled into the aircraft's cargo hold, resulting in extensive corrosion damage to the fuselage, wing box structure and landing gear. The aircraft was subsequently declared written-off.[19] On 12 June 2007, a court in Beijing ordered China National Chemical Construction Corp, the owner of the cargo, to pay US$65 million to Malaysia Airlines for the loss.[20]
* On 24 July 2001, two Sri Lankan Airlines A330-243s were destroyed on ground by an LTTE attack at Colombo's Bandaranaike International Airport, Sri Lanka, along with an Airbus A320-200, an Airbus A340-300 and a squadron of military aircraft. Another two planes, an A320 and an A340 were also damaged but have since been repaired.[22]
* On 1 June 2009, Air France Flight 447, an Airbus A330-203 en route from Rio de Janeiro to Paris with 228 people onboard, was reported lost over the Atlantic Ocean.[26] The aircraft crashed in the Atlantic Ocean 400-500 miles northeast of the islands of Fernando de Noronha. All 228 passengers and crew were killed. Malfunctioning pitot tubes have provided an early focus for the investigation.[27]

A340 writeoffs from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airbus_A340
* 20 January 1994 - Air France, an A340-211 (F-GNIA) was lost to fire during servicing at Charles de Gaulle Airport.
* 24 July 2001 - SriLankan Airlines, an A340-300 (4R-ADD) was blown up by Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam terrorists while on the ground at the Bandaranaike International Airport.
* 2 August 2005 - Air France Flight 358, all 297 passengers and 12 crew survived a crash and fire after their A340-300 (F-GLZQ) overshot runway 24L at Toronto Pearson International Airport during a landing in a thunderstorm. The aircraft slid into Etobicoke Creek and broke-up. Forty-three were injured, one seriously; some passengers jumped nearly 20 ft (6 m) to the ground.
* 9 November 2007 - An Iberia Airlines A340-600 (EC-JOH) was badly damaged after sliding off the runway at Ecuador’s Mariscal Sucre International Airport. The landing gear collapsed and two engines broke off. All 333 passengers and crew were evacuated via inflatable slides, and there were no serious injuries. The aircraft was scrapped.
* 15 November 2007 - An A340-600 was damaged beyond repair during ground engine testing at Airbus' facilities at Toulouse Blagnac International Airport. Six days prior to the airplane's planned delivery to Etihad Airways, the plane pushed itself[25] up a sloped concrete wall, suffering severe fuselage damage. The cockpit section was severed and fell to the ground from a height of about 15 m atop the wall. Five people on board were injured, three of them seriously.[26] The aircraft was written off.[27]

Does that include the planes that DL/NW has parked? I believe at least two A333s are now at MZJ.

Assuming #6 is a regular 767-200, or was it converted to a -200ER?

That was #1099 which OP has marked wo ("write off"). He meant no fully functional 744 has ever been scrapped though B747FE's info seems to contradict that.

Thank you. I expect this was a tremendous amount of work. I'd love to see a 777 list!  Wink

I'm happy for your work as I was under the impression far more 744's were currently stored.

Anyone know what fraction of the 741/742/743 are still flying? I know QF is scrapping (or should I say, planning to scrap) a number of 743's. I would imagine few 741's or 742's are in passenger service today.

Quoting Na (Thread starter):
The following 122 Boeing 767 (out of 982 built)

I cannot help but notice that after line number 373 far fewer are stored. I assume that is due to most 767's produced being the 763ER by then? (Note: I'm asking a question.)

That is sad to hear.  Sad Due to the limited number of RR powered 744's, I'm not that surprised a RB211 powered airframe is the first to be scrapped.

Yes, they are in for short-term storage. In fact the first to go in was already painted into DL colors (Ln. 549). This week I saw on Flight Aware that another has arrived at MZJ - I think that's #2. ACARS showed that one as Ln. 552 (N805NW).

So the first 744 has been scrapped. Sad, but quite an achievement for the type that it took 20 years before the first of almost 700 744s was dismantled.

Thanks for your thanks. As for your question reparding fewer 767s stored after ln.373, yes, its because more than 90% built afterwards are 300ERs and these are mostly still useful and young enough to be retired only once the 787s come in to replace them in the next decade.
The 777 list is of cause very short. Beside the rejected new Jet Aw. 77W there are 3 or 4 772s (I think all ex-UA) currently stored, and that for years already. Plus 3 or 4 freighters which have seen no service yet. Maybe they´ll be joined by some 77Ws soon once Gulf Air is dumping their leased 77Ws which the owner Jet Aw doesnt need either.
