It's always a heart sank when I see these birds in storage even if I now that it's a good thing for the industry.

Very sad, isolated in the desert after providing so much excellent service.

Wow, that aircraft was delivered exactly 24 days after I was born, and saw service for 24 years as well. Can't say it had a bad track record though, plying the skies between the States and Asia for all that time.
