I did not see any identifying marks on the 744 broken up by Air Salvage Interbational. But AF's F-GITA was broken up by them last February. So it seems likely that was the one.

Look in the other thread on this topic, it was already discussed it great detail. From memory it's VT-EPX.

Are titanium parts always recovered and recycled/smelted?
|Quoting RJAF (Reply 14):|
heard a 'D' check on a 747 costs around USD 1.5M! Can anyone confirm?
|Quoting vv701 (Reply 17):|
I have no idea how much an aeronautical engineer might earn but recognising the above figures would need to include something for materials used, I would think that the cost of a D Check might be more rather than less than US$ 1,5 million but probably in that ball park.

37 days is 15% of the maximum 240 working days in a year (48 weeks x 5 days). Not 10%.
|Quoting vv701 (Reply 20):|
So for 'VX every day of the week - that is all 37 days spent at CWL, Monday through Sunday - were working days. 37 days is 10.11 per cent (and not 15 per cent ) of 366 days (2012 being a leap year)
The number of working days in a year and the number of holiday days only become relevant if we working out an hourly pay rate and not an annual or weekly salary.
