Does anyone know the status of the airline a/c that were damaged in the recent floods----have they been "dried out" and re-activated?

Well, I remember some Thai A300s. Those are retired planes. And as much as I know only the lower parts of the undercarriage was under water, not the engines or even fuselage. I doubt there was serious damage inflicted. But I wonder why they are not flown to the US, its a safer and dryer parking there. A good A300-600 less than 20 years old should attract a buyer.

Yes definitely, in cargo standards these 21 and a half year old birds are still quite "new". I would bet that FedEx will most likely be picking them up sometime sooner or later.

The photo remark says the the aircraft can't fly anymore, so I guess they will be sat there until they are scrapped. Plus if you noticed the first Tri-star has no engines anyway.

Looks like the water didn't get up the engines, makes me wonder how much damage - if any - would have been incurred? I've been in a plane landing in a heavy downpour, water was flying everywhere. How different is this?

The most surprising one was the government ACJ319 which was also submerged in the water. Those A300s/L1011s were not surprising at all.
