Here is what happens when you are not careful about where you park your 747. The alarm on this aircraft was going off for two days before anyone called the police. Don't let this happen to you!!!

Oh come now. It's a Tower Air bird, which means it's gotten top quality maintenance...in fact, despite how badly the damage is, Tower Air's crackhead...err...crack team of maintenance personnel can make that bird airworthy with just duct tape and chewing gum!

Morris was trying to taxi the old girl out for one more flight!

On a side note: Where has "This is NOT Tower Air's" website gone!?!?!?!?

Tower Air should have just parked it along one of the NY City main roads, like the Cross-Bronx Expressway.  Big grin In 24 hours, only the plastic parts would have been left. Yes, it is a shame for a 747 to die, but as this was a former Tower Air a/c, this is being relatively respectable, and besides, I don't think too many parts were usable on it after they got done with it.

Seeing as it was a Tower Air bird, getting to a bone yard was probably the airplane equivalent of being put out of its misery.

Ltbewr haha. I'd laugh so hard if I saw Boeing rims on a pimped out Escalade. Maybe they would steal it and pimp it out.  Wink/being sarcastic Sort of like that movie.... Soul Plane
