Enlarge it and you'll see what I mean.

It looks like this L-1011 landed in a sun flower field!

Anyone care to explain this?

It is being broken-up; Amarillo is one of those (ex Air Force Base) airports where such dreadful (but inevitable) things are done...

Oh okay. I know that they break up aircraft in Amarillo, its just the plane looked so intact that I was wondering whether this plane really crashed or not!

It's being parted out - looks like they are after actuators and possibly some of the control surfaces as well.
