N1419D that was involved in an accident at DFW on May 23 will be written off. Anybody know the extent of the damage? The accident did not look too severe.

The damage was not that bad and the aircraft could have been repaired and returned into service in about 6-8 weeks. AA decided, however, to scrap the plane and use it for parts.

Fokker the company that makes the aircraft has been gone for quite sometime. I heard right now they've been canabalising parts. I might be wrong but thats what I heard. The did the same thing to a DC-10 after a landing accident. The plane was scrapped for parts. The photos are on this forum. The forward undercarage collapsed and the nose cone is gone as well as forward landing gear.

Baec 777,
AA is buying 717s, remember they are honoring the contract TWA has with Boeing. I can't wait to see a 717 in AA colors

I can certainly wait to see a 717 in AA colors- especially if they put them in the interim TWA-AA colors. See the other posts.

BUT- I am surprised at this news. However, we have been hearing that the F100 was not a reliable plane. I don't mean reliable in terms of 'dispatch reliability' but in terms of longevity. So now this goes together- unreliable planes need a spare for parts. Hey- that works.

That is what BA and AF did with their Concordes. There were several on the ground being used for parts long before all were grounded.

Not BA and their Concordes. BA's 7 Concordes had all been active for many years before the Paris tragedy. Years previously they had stored one but they later refurbished it and returned it to service. AF, however, had permanently grounded 1 of their Concordes as a spares source.


Hop to it, fly for life!
