A rare glimpse into the final stages of this Airfrance 320. Workers are currently looking for parts under the main landing gear. Thanks everyone who made this image possible. End on the line for this bird.....

Something about watching an A320 being scrapped as being deemed uneconomical by its carrier seems quite surreal. I'm feeling old.

Very sad sight. I think I read somewhere that this plane is not even 20 years old. I mean I've got socks older than it. And when you think about it 20 years is not really much for a plane when it's serviced properly and I'am thinking of 727s,707s,A310s and DC8s which are still in active duty and are at least twice as old.
I'am not feeling well watching this picture.

I guess SFB ran out of space for these dying birds... I thought AF was going to send all of them there.

Really a sad sight, but many vintage A320s like this one, around 20 years old, are being retired and scrapped.
