I can not believe, a 777 is going to be scrapped?
Due to some kind of damage?

Wow that 777 retirement comes early! Isn't the plane just about 10 years old? not even? My car is older than those 777s :)

That must be one of the sadest pictures on this site. I can't belive they have so many planes grounded. But anyway. A great and very sharp picture.

The wonder is that there are several "newer" aircrafts, not only the triple7, also the 400 series of the 747 and some of the 737 are 300 or 500 series. There's also an A320 (NW) at the right top of the photo...wow!

That Logistic Air CARGO 747 (N617FF) is the most interesting piece here. Its the first time its shown anywhere. Did it ever operate?

Apparently it is an Ex-BA Boeing 777-200 and is the first to go for scrap. Universal Asset Management will be dismantling G-ZZZE 11 years after the twinjet entered service. The 777, originally equipped with GE90-76B engines, but subsequently fitted with more powerful GE90-90Bs, was traded by BA to Boeing in 2002. After initially being placed with the now-defunct Algerian carrier Khalifa Airways in 2003, it entered service with Varig as PP-VRD in 2004. The aircraft was returned to Boeing in August and is now registered N703BA. G-ZZZE was one of five non-Extended Range variants that BA operated.

Not all these birds are getting scrapped. Many are in for maintenance like 482EV in for check. Scrapping the 777 makes economic sense because it is the short range variant and the sum of the parts is worth more than the complete airframe. The airplane will continue to fly, just not in one piece!

Well the 777 is from 1999, so it's not that young...

Such a sad sight. Are the ex-Mesaba RJ85s going to be scrapped? I hope not. I love BAe-146s and RJs, and they are only 7-10 years old! That would be such a waste. Does anyone know what will happen to them?

Haha, you can see the remains of a Hooters 737-(200 I'm guessing) between the Varig 777 and the 747-400. It is very sad to see that Varig 777 go...

The Varig 777 due to be scrapped was a lease to Varig.Varig,at the end of thier operation had the tendency to fly an airplane until it died,steal what they could off of it then throw the keys under the floormat and walk away.This aircraft was repo'd from Varig with 2 smoked engines at 15million dollars each,the landing gear timed out at 7 million dollars and 3 mill in black boxes missing from the E&E compartment.With a market value of around $40mil,they were even money to cut it up.We put a brand new landing gear under it,then pushed it back out in the desert to sit.Non ER plane,just doesn't have a lot of value.
