I posted a thread about a month ago about the status of the last B737-100, but there were no replies. I guess that when the type is confirmed to be gone from the skies forever that everyone will suddenly become nostalgic about it, but the point is that there is still a possibly airworthy B737-112 in existence.
The aircraft was flown into TUS
last year after being retired from the Mexican Air Force, and was re-registered from TP
-03 to N772WH. I believe that N772WH is still stored at TUS
, and registered to a company called Savannah Aviation. Something on another website, however, mentions Ryan International, although I doubt that they would have any interest in a B737-100.
So, LAST CHANCE, could anyone who has visited TUS
recently confirm whether N772WH has been sighted, or better still, photographed recently? If anyone has any idea what Savannah Aviation plan to do with this aircraft, any information would be most appreciated. If anyone is working at TUS
or planning a visit there, could they please look out for this aircraft and confirm its apparent status (on behalf of all B731 fans!)....?
Save the B737-100!
P.S. I realise that the original B737-100 is probably still airworthy, despite being a museum piece, but it is very unlikely to fly again.
