"It doesn't hurt. A little duct tape some baling wire and I'll be good as new...really!"
This photo tells a great story of 'end of life.'

A visitor from Germany posted Sat December 29, 2012:
It almost looks like a F-18 on the thumbnail.

Farewell, may you rest in peace classic queen... May the airplane gods accept you in airplane heaven

Dang Skip! That was a rough landing!

A visitor from United States posted Sun January 8, 2012:
It seems like such a shame to see such a grand aircraft in this condition.... but it is a great photograph to be able to evoke such feeling.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue November 30, 2010:
Hope it was quick and painless, RIP!

A visitor from United States posted Sun October 24, 2010:
Yes, it is sad to see this photo, but when you think about it, almost every airplane, ship, train or building ever built is going to end up being taken apart, ripped up, blown up, or whatever, to make room for something else. At least all that aluminum is going to be melted down and turned into something else; who knows, with a little luck, it may even end up in another B 747 !

A visitor from Canada posted Wed January 27, 2010:
Looks like something just beat it to death to get it apart!!What a loss.

A visitor from United States posted Sat April 4, 2009:
Gerhard possesses an eye for aviation lore and history in true living color... rather tiresome and trite, but an eye nonetheless

A visitor from United States posted Sat January 24, 2009:
Really sad sad photo.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun December 21, 2008:
Interesting shot. When I saw the small blue trailer to the right I thought a GPU was still plugged into the Aircraft!

A visitor from Canada posted Sun December 14, 2008:
You can build nice house out of this...

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed October 8, 2008:
Snif, what a waste of such a beautiful aircraft!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun August 10, 2008:
Sad to see this beauty in that shape :(

A visitor from Poland posted Tue January 29, 2008:
Looks like the last bow just before courtain is closed... :(

A visitor from United States posted Wed December 19, 2007:
It is just incredible..

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat December 8, 2007:
Sad picture. This should never happen to any lovely 747's or any Boeing for that matter.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sat May 19, 2007:
It looks like C-3PO in Star Wars Episode 2: "Attack of the clones" when he says: "I'm beside myself."

Poor thing...no 747 should have to look like that!

A visitor from United States posted Sun January 21, 2007:

A visitor from Estonia posted Sun December 17, 2006:
That looks so much like An-124.

A visitor from Australia posted Sun May 7, 2006:
?! ouch!!

A visitor from Mexico posted Fri February 10, 2006:
Couldn´t be converted into a freighter? Looks like it´s really sufferin´. T.B.

A visitor from United States posted Fri February 10, 2006:
Looks like a 747 doing an AN-124 impression.

A visitor from United States posted Wed December 28, 2005:
It's like the guillotine came by and had a run with this classic. Sad to see it go...
