Can Anyone Explain This Photo?

Can anyone explain why this American 727 is torn to pieces on the inside? It looks like a fire happened.

Looks like a picture from an old scrap yard. Interior was torn apart on purpose most likely.

From the caption, this is an old 727 that either is destined for the scrap yard (as mentioned earlier) or conversion to a freighter. In the meantime, its obvious that some birds have gotten in it and been using it as a bathroom for quite a while!
