According to Money DJ, a Taiwan business site, EVA sold two B744 combis for 16.5m USD. Not each, but for both!

16.5M $??? Are you kidding me?

That's like around 8.5 mil a pop! What the heck, are they going to the scrappers?

Nothing unusual, if they are going in for coversion to BCF/BDSF + D check.

D check and conversion will add up to a additional $12-18 million per aircraft.

I believe they had 4 of those combis. I was on two of them in March of this year. One each from TPE to/from JKT. They were both nearly 20 years old. Although they still flew beautifully and didn't seem that old inside because they were well kept.

But they cant be worth a whole lot of money.

China Airlines reported sold a 20 some year old 747 to a Thai carrier for only one million USD. Sadly that plane was lost on its next to last revenue flight (from TPE to HKG) before it got transferred.

So, who did they sell them to?

Back here in the Low Countries there was a newsarticle a few weeks ago about a Pakistani businessman wanting to start up a new airline using 744C' (and T7's) out of AMS. Could it be?

I can confirm they were both sold to Aersale. Same company that bought the majority of JAL 400s.

Some of their purchases find new homes, but considering these are 19-20 year old 400s, and the relatively low sale price, they are both destined to be parted out.

The first one B-16405 was ferried to ROW on the 9th.

I believe the next one is B-16403.

Wow, I guess I got lucky then, I flew one from HKG-TPE last month. The flight was fine, and I was happy to get on a type that I knew would soon be gone, but I never guessed so fast.

Then again, as nice as the experience was, I'm sure flying something like that wouldn't be popular on a TPAC flight, the cabin was showing its age, and even the CRT(!) monitors were a bit funny.

if they are going in for ... D check.

If they're due for a D check, what are the rules around inspecting the parts that are parted out?

I guess it's a little bit like only doing the D check on the valuable parts, and not bothering with the less valuable parts (like the fuselage, etc.), which just get scrapped?

When only one airline operating a bunch of 74Ms & T7s just isn't enough,

Hey on a 48 month used plane note, that comes to $171,875 a month. With 0% interest of course!

That was the 742 which crashed 10 years ago.

If a repair station with FAA part 145 authority inspects and issues an FAA form 8130-3 or EASA form 1 against the part, then it is considered airworthy and can be reused.

You do realize that a $20,000 Ferrari will likely require a "D" check of its own, totaling $35,000 to take it another 20,000 miles...

I saw a 360 for sale not long ago for only 70,000. But I shuddered at how much work and expense it may need to get it up to speed.

Probably EVA got a pretty good price for the two . Doing all their own maintenance (and even being the maker of the LCF for Boeing) I think EVA knows exactly what those planes are worth , broken up or otherwise.
