I'd take one of the Midwest, very sad to see those 2 717's that are 6-8 years old sitting there, hopefully an owner is found for them. I know midwest got bought by Republic, but in my opinion Midwest is dead. RIP Midwest, you were such a great airline...

I miss the MD-80's. Now only American regularly flies the Super 80 into SEA. And now that AA is retiring them too...

Thats one great photo. But are you sure these A/C are being grounded? I'm seeing CX Cargo 744s, 767s, and United 737s in new livery.

Wow those 744s still look in pretty mint condition! they certainly dont deserve to be in the scrapyards. and the 742 at the top left corner, just behind cathay cargo 744 and delta 767 is Singapore's forgotten cargo airline, jett8 airlines cargo!

They should stop making new planes and take the old ones out the desert! Note the UA 737 has the old nose cone!

Why did United give the new colors to those 737s and even the 744, when they retire anyways?

I think these airplanes are stored here until they need them again. This is mutch cheaper then store them on an airport. Most airplanes are there now due to the crisis. When they need them again they just pic it out en takeoff :)

An excellent illustration of the various tolls of the 'Economic Crisis' - hopefully we'll see most back in service soon...

That is so sad...the Midwest planes were family to us, we worked them flew on them and loved them. There were only 25 717 aircraft in the fleet. I think that is N922ME and N910ME(or 918). RIP Midwest.

The two 744s from CPA are the planes that dont belong in this picture. they put so much money and effort converting them to freighters, and now they sit in the desert rotting. what a pity.

can i get an amen on this? ):

Wow...sad to see that Adam Air there...poor maintanance and pilot training in the past caused several accidents and total bankrupcy of the airline.
