Truly a sad story told here if a 747-400 can't find a new owner. Is there something wrong with this A/C? How could classic 747s find new homes and this 'baby' which can't be more than 20 years old with far fewer cycles be at the end of its life?
Something doesn't add up here. I'm sure she worth more sold off for service than sold for parts and scrap.

A Sad sight. NBS sitting next to her sistership ZK-SUJ. All the Air New Zealand logo's and Koru have been removed, along with her engines as the process of breaking her down for parts begins. There is still some talk that she will be re-engined and flown to the US for the breakdown.
