Some B747 looking for a next operator. The first one F-WSEA, ex N188UA, flies now for CRL as F-HSEA. The ones on top will probably get scrapped...

It is very unhuman to scrap them! That shows that organizations are not grateful.

That's a lot of Northwest birds. I didn't realize they got rid of that many. Nice angle, by the way.

Well guys, let´s be honest, it´s sheet metal bent into aerodynamic shapes which has carried millions of people and tons of freight around the world safely and now its time to reconsider its profitability. That's 2006 at the very beginning.
Nevertheless it´s somewhat sad

What a beautiful photo! Indeed it's sad to see these graceful monsters motionless and anchored to the ground, but the 747 will always be an amazing machine - flying or not! What will replace this plane will surely have big shoes to fill, but I will always love the 747!

I almost cry with this photo. But I am surprised to see all that NWA planes. It look like they don't repaint there planes but buy new planes to paint them...:D. I wish I could buy one of them but my parents don't like I think :D

Very very nice shot! I love to see all these 747s lined up.

As far as I know, a lot of cargo aircraft are actually passenger aircraft converted into cargo ones. Therefore they still have windows in, they are just blocked up. They probably pulled the blocks out when they scrapped it.

Sad pic. But isn't this same pic in the database already ?
Btw , the LH's has got Windows because they are conversions.

Cool! I love this picture. I wish to have a big back yard like this and play like a little happy boy. I wonder, does aircraft heaven really exists?
I wonder, will some of them become aircrafts angels?
Dear God, Bless them all. Amen.

Most of the NWA 747s appear to be older 100 & 200 series, so given their financial state, I'm not the least bit surprised to see so many of them here. Smaller more efficient mid sized planes like the 777 and forthcoming 787 are more economical and more point to point in the International flying arena. On the larger passenger demand routes, the A380 will be more of the player in the not to distant future.

I think they're all older generation 747s apart from the United one, (I think the white one behind it's a -300), so it's not surprising they're being retired, considering even the -200 is 30 years old now. Even so, I wouldn't be surprised to see a few of the well looked after ones like the ex Lufthansa ones making a comeback with someone.

My comment: 1. Too many Northwest Airlines! 2. An United Airlines in Flying Tigers' colour doesn't look good! 3. An All Nippon Airways with no words sounds great!

They surely are not scrapped? Fortunately.

The Polar one is a Dash 200 I suppose?

I want one :D

Lots of Jumbos to choose from. I would pick them all, but I am being to greedy. If I ever choose a particular aircraft, I`d choose the three Lufti freighters.
