What Will Happen/has Happened To These Planes?

Sun Feb 08, 2004 8:51 am

Looks like at least 35 ex-Air Ukraine planes are just sitting there. What will happen to these planes? Scrapped? Are some of them gonna fly again(big ones like Il-62, Tu-154 and Tu-134) I think it's a waste. Just because the carrier is in financial crisis doesn't mean the planes have to go. Especially those Il-62s, not many left. What do you think?
