Its been almost two years since the small, Minnesota based charter carrier Champion Air ceased operations due to high fuel prices and losing business. I'm not sure when the Champion Air titles were removed from their hangar at MSP or what the hangar will be used for, but it seemed like the name was on there a long time after the shut down. I was wondering if anyone knew where Champion Air's 727s are? Have some of them been scrapped? It would be great if someone also had pictures of them.

About 10 have been scrapped and about 6 are in storage and not likely tor return to service....The stored a/c are parked all over the country in places like San Bernadino, Ardmore, Jacksonville and Opa Locka. Sadly the demise of Champion Air spelled the death knell for many of these tri-holers.
