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.

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?
