Arrived from Manston 11th January. Now looking a bit sad sitting on it's belly being scrapped. The B747 behind is TF-ATC which arrived from Gatwick on 20th April also for scrapping. Lying on the ground are some fuselage parts which look to be from the Canada 3000 A310 that was broken up recently.

I was 8 years old when I sat in the cockpit of this particular plane, on a KLM flight from Curacao to Amsterdam. Since that flight I developed a love for aviation. 18 years later I have become an aerospace engineer, knowing all about airplane lifecycles. It makes me sad to this one being scrapped.
5 stars for capuring it though :-)
