We know... they'll probably reuse the metal for wiring. But the coke can from a 777 sounds cooler...

Has no part been preserved in some kind of museum?
Nothing at all?

I wouldn´t mind a cockpit window………..or something in that style.
Pretty cool relic, if you ask me!

Well, last I saw it, most of the fuel system was somewhere around Boeing Field for part of the investigation testing. Not sure if it's still there though.

If there is ever a museum of the crashed and burnt or museum for junks then maybe. Can you tell me what is worth preserving and why?

Interesting perspective on luck... on one hand everyone got off without serious injury, but on the other hand the statistical odds of being in a plane crash are far lower than even winning the lottery.

Nope, rejoined BA a few months ago and back as 777 captain.

LOL, good point. I guess it's a reminder then that sometimes your bad luck ends at the right time.

Who´s talking about burnt?
Large parts of that aircraft were still very much in tact and since it´s the 1st hull loss of a 777 (up to today, still) I wouldn´t be surprised if some (smaller) institutions would be happy to preserve a certain part--> as a high profile accident that it was, it is most definitely part of aviation history. Sully´s A320 will be preserved in a museum--> is that "crashed junk"?
That was a miraculous and spectacular accident--> with luckily no loss of human life!
This 777-case may not be AS spectacular but it still remains unique to to see a 777 lying on the threshold of a LHR runway, with everybody surviving; luckily!

In my particular industry we keep all sorts or relics of all sorts of (old) crafts--> for the history of it but for educational purposes as well.

Again I say, I wouldn´t mind "a piece" of that--> as many wouldn´t, I´m sure.

I didn´t think of that, of course--> makes sense!

I believe he is back with BA.
Rumours were rife in BA that he was at fault over the crash and BA did not do enough to stomp out these rumours. He left BA hoping to get employment with a MidEast or Asian airline,was unsuccesful and 'returned to the fold'.

The left hand main landing gear would be nice.

The crew already separated it from the airplane so the only thing I would have to do is roll it over to the KLM check in counter for the flight to AMS. I wonder how much the excess baggage fee would be $$$.

I would then park it in Amsterdam and wait for the Police to try and tow it away or write me a ticket for illegally parking a landing gear.   

(unrealistic I know, but never the less fun to think about)

Most of the cockpit section is used as a simulator at Cranebank. This is a quote from part of an e-mail I received from Captain Peter Burkill "I start back with BA in Nov, and I must say I am excited at starting work again after so long out of the seat. I visited Cranebank last week to sort out a few admin bits, and was shown the 'new' (to me anyway) 777 fixed based sim, which I will spend some time in in Nov, and ssaw that most of it is made up of 'MMMs' flight deck, including the seats!!"

Cheers,

There´s a museum in Italy with a crashed DC-9 from Itavia, I think it is in Bologna?
