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!
South Carolina - too small to be its own country, too big to be a mental asylum.

Tower Air should have just parked it along one of the NY City main roads, like the Cross-Bronx Expressway. 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.
