Mojave Desert Jets

Thu May 20, 2004 9:59 pm

I was just wondering...how long will a plane stay out there until it is scrapped...i know that there are newer ones that will not be scrapped but what about the L-1011s, 727s, DC-9s (although NW still operates those  Big thumbs up )...obviously many of those jets are at the end of their life.
The next generation of aircraft is just around the corner!

There were a bunch of CV-880s out there for decades before they were finally cut up.
