If anything ever needed a polish with turtle wax, that is it.

Yep I like her rough and dirty !!!

If you look in the photo database you'll find out she was put out of her misery in Febuary 2009 & broken up!

Nice photo, but it is heartbreaking to see a once proud jetliner in this state of disrepair.

A visitor from Australia posted Sat July 24, 2010:
Disappointment to the airline industry would take a lot to make her fly again!

Did you notice the discarded ULD on the left-side.. It appears to be from Swiss Airlines... So it's not just airplanes that are left here!

A visitor from Sweden posted Sun May 17, 2009:
This just hurts... The queen of the skies looks sad, but somehow she still looks proud. Wonder if that's the "Moth Ball" I was supposed to take for a spin in FSX ;-)

Faded Elegance.

What a waste

A visitor from United States posted Mon November 24, 2008:
Very nice detail in this picture, though as an Airframe and Powerplant mechanic, it its a very sad sight to behold.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed June 27, 2007:
Awwww...dead plane,

A visitor from Pakistan posted Tue August 22, 2006:
Nice picture but bad sight..

A visitor from Australia posted Tue August 8, 2006:
"The aircraft, on a cargo flight to Lagos' Murtalah Mohammed Airport, collided with construction equipment after being cleared to land on closed runway 19R. As the aircraft was rolling out, the main landing gear impacted several construction vehicles parked on the runway, which was closed according to NOTAMs in effect. The aircraft departed the runway, tearing off at least one wing. The flight crew escaped with minor injuries." Airdisaster.com

A picture that shows a company with a well developed saefty culture.

A visitor from Canada posted Mon May 8, 2006:
Its the latest paint scheme for the cargo group and their new marketing campaign. "we transport sewage now," i think it really captures this new service in a captivating way.

A visitor from South Africa posted Sat May 6, 2006:
To neglect beautiful machines such as this should be punishable by law.

A visitor from United States posted Wed May 3, 2006:
Who owns this brid, I wouldnt mind buying it ,and repairing for flight again does any one have recent shots of the interior ?

A visitor from United States posted Fri April 14, 2006:
This is a sad sight. I think this airline should have invested in more than one plane. Does anyone know what happened to the pilot?!? I guess he lost his job. What a disappointing set of circumstances.

A visitor from South Africa posted Tue April 11, 2006:
If you ever had the misfortune of having worked on this airplane, it wouldn't " break your heart " to see it rotting away, RIP- and stay there!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun April 9, 2006:
That needs cleaning

A visitor from Poland posted Sun April 2, 2006:

This B747 would make Air France Proud

A visitor from Switzerland posted Mon March 27, 2006:
In 1500 years from now the industrial archeologists will still be puzzled about this heap of metal.
Evocative pix anyway!

This old daddy is a world record holder: In 1991 It flew over 1050 people from Addis Ababa (HAAB) to Tel Aviv (LLBG) in one flight!

A visitor from United States posted Mon March 27, 2006:
