Aircraft In Storage At Your Home Airport

Thu Mar 18, 2004 12:25 am

Here in MCO, we have 4 Airtran DC9's (BBU), 2 ex US B11 (used for fire fighting training), 3 ex AA B727 (1 BBU) and a B52 bomber on display at a park near the old terminal. MCO really sucks for diversity. Nothing in storage at SFB or ORL.

Hey Horus

Who is taking care of the 707's? Will they ever fly again? I am watching the original Airport movie right now, with the 707. How ironic!

We have the Avro RJX prototype on display too. We had the Monarch DC-10-30 G-DCMA but that was scrapped last year and is now on display at the AVP. We have an Ex-Iberia 757 in storage too and possibly a VS 742.

We should hopefully have a Trident soon  Smile

Akjetblue:

SFB lost its only interesting plane in storage when they got the ex-LH L-1649 Starliner running and flew it to Polk City.

Nothing of any particular interest here in CHS either.

There was A American 747 stored in there hangar until 1996 then flew out as a all white cargo plane flying for Atlas Air.

Braniff stored "Big Orane" at JFK until 1993 (Big orange is a 747)

United has some planes stored at there hangar. 2 757s 1 777 1 767-200

Well i dont know if this counts but G-BOAD is at the intrepid

Nothing as far as I know at DTW. At YIP there are two Zantop and one Trans Con DC-8s, a couple of DC-6s and some Zantop Electras. Kalitta has an ex AA 727 being parted out and USA Jet has at least one and possibly two parted out DC-9s. Also there is a DHC-4 that has been sitting in the same spot forever.

What a horribly uneducated statement that is. When I am at MCO, I see twice the number of carriers that I see in many other places around the country. You are so spoiled there that you don't even know it.

At Helsinki (HEL) we have two former Air Lib's DC-10s, one Finnair's DC-9 and two Flying Finn's MD-80s...

Those DC-10s have been here almost a year waiting for their destiny... whatever it will be. Here was also 3rd Air Lib's DC-10, but as far as I know it has found new owner and flown away from here.

My "home" airports are MZJ (Pinal Air Park) and TUS (Tucson International) and there is nothing really new at either. Of course the old is nearing 400 stored aircraft but it gets boring seeing the same 400 every day.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Here in ATL, on 3/14, I was able to see a Delta MD-11 in the interim colors. I didn't get a good look at the registration but it was parked at the TOC and my guess it was ship 807, the one that suffered the fire a few months ago.

What is going to happen to this 732? I think I saw it off by itself over by the Northwest hangar ... and it had no engines *or* engine pylons, even.

As for Delta's MD-11 that had the engine fire, that one really doesn't count - it's a leased aircraft and will eventually (I think most here agree) go forth to its new owner, be that Fedex, World, or whoever. It's too valuable to not fix, unless it was damaged more than posts here have let on.

Nobody has yet managed to get pictures of the aftermath ?

Litz,

I think we can all agree here that ATL is not an airport that has much "storage" room. I was just pointing out the mere fact that yes, ship 807 has been sitting there for a good bit and yes, it did go through a substantial amount of damage...now if you know for a fact that the aircraft is going to Fed Ex or World then ok, but I have no news as to what the fate will be, specially when you have former DL Md-11's sitting in the desert right now.

At KYIP, there are many planes stored, but most will likely never fly again. There are numerous L-188's without engines, some DC-8's, and others. If you want to count fighter jets at the Yankee Air Museum as stored, well, there are a number there, including a B-52.
