many people expected the airplane to be down for a big repair and rebuild. where is the airplane now and what is it's status? did boeing need to be called to do the work or were WN's mx personnel enough?

Isnt this in storage at burbank until the investigation is complete ?
|Quoting OPNLguy (Reply 3):|
It's still inside the barn at MDW...
|Quoting Vegasplanes (Reply 5):|
Different plane, I believe the one you are thinking of occured in BUR back on March 5, 2000. That was a -300 series.
|Quoting Cgagn (Reply 7):|
Where is the Air France A340 that crashed at Pearson? Is that being stored somewhere until the investigation is complete?
|Quoting OPNLguy (Reply 6):|
Indeed, the BUR one was N668SW, and it was parted out there at BUR.
|Quoting Vegasplanes (Reply 10):|
I figured that is what happened to it, there are a few pics of the plane after the incident at BUR, looked like it was pretty severly damaged. Going by the reg. #, seems like the plane was one of the "newer" -300 series that WN has/had.
|Quoting OPNLguy (Reply 11):|
while it may have appeared that N668SW was a newer -300 purely by the registration number, it was actually one of SWA's oldest -300s.
|Quoting Vegasplanes (Reply 12):|
Looks like N301SW/302SW are over 21 years old, I would imagine with WN's P2P service model the number of cycles are getting up there, would WN re-skin the planes and keep flying them for a while, or would they sell them off to freighters or like ?
|Quoting 777DadandJr (Reply 14):|
Speaking of WN 737's, does anyone know what happened to N686SW?
I took this pic at PAE last June, but don't know what became of her.

Re-painted and back in service. 291 ABQ-SAN as we speak...
