Its kind of sad though, to become bits and pieces after such great service.

A visitor from Brazil posted Wed December 31, 2008:
Very sad to see a once proud jetliner in this disrepair condition.

Interesting technique for removing flight control equipment...just cut out the whole cockpit.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon April 24, 2006:
Very Very sad.

This was one of our A/C. I work for Atlas Air Inc. this was a cargo 747-200 classic tail # N808MC. It is sad to see it now, but it was at the end of it's economic life and its scrapping lengthened the lives of a few more of our classic fleet (which we are replacing with 747-400's and 747-8's). As we move on and replace the few classics we have left, this was a necessary measure. It served well, but it was its time to go. Actually I know a few crew members who have the cargo door, nose cone, ect. and I've been inside this A/C during one of its final checks. You might see a few more of our classics looking like this soon.

A visitor from Germany posted Mon April 24, 2006:
My god! I saw her in summer last year, already in a very dirty condition but it's quite shocking what they've done to her now!
she slipped off the runway last winter. you can see the pics here.

A visitor from Uruguay posted Mon April 24, 2006:
Maybe they were testing an ejectable cockpit? :P

A visitor from Mexico posted Mon April 24, 2006:
So sad to see this baby in this shape. Perhaps it will be for airport firemen trainin´ on a 747. If it gets repaired, what a luck. T.B.

A visitor from Korea, Republic Of posted Mon April 24, 2006:
Looks as though they just sawed off the section of fuselage that the registration number was painted on...!

A visitor from United States posted Mon April 24, 2006:

A visitor from United States posted Sun April 23, 2006:
Any chance this is just part of a (very) heavy maintenance check? Or is she done? If so, very sad.

A visitor from Germany posted Sun April 23, 2006:
After a over one year storage the crashed 747 will be scrapped soon ...
It's a very sad sight - anyone who can tell me where I can get a piece of wing for my desktop?

A visitor from Switzerland posted Sun April 23, 2006:

A visitor from United States posted Sun April 23, 2006:
