Ex-Varig 777-236 Scrapped Already Or Not?

Thu May 17, 2007 7:05 am

I wonder if the two ex-Varig third-hand 777-236s have been scrapped by now. Its about 6 months since that decision was made, so are these mistreated Triple Sevens still around?

Quoting NA (Thread starter):

I'm sure the scrapping is underway. There was a picture of it on A.net several months ago after arriving to be scrapped.

Both were 772As. PP-VRC was ln 17, PP-VRD was ln 19, in other words, some of the first few 777s produced and delivered, about 9 months before the first 772ER was delivered.

Both had GE90-76B engines.

No, Royal Brunei got former PP-VRE and N207UA, which is a 77E with PW engines. PP-VRC was ex-BA G-ZZZD.

One is sitting down in ARG right now, and she's not going anywhere fast.
