Sickening - I flew on this from CDG - JNB back in 2003, just found this on a search for her. Very disappointing :-(

A visitor from Canada posted Thu March 31, 2011:
Such a saddening picture emphazised by the wintery atmosphere. I last flew Tango Alpha between MRU and CDG in December 2009. Souvenir...

I wonder how much hate mail I would get if I had to do this. :(

A visitor from France posted Mon March 21, 2011:
After surviving a ditch in the lagoon of Tahiti, the GITAnic did not manage to escape the scrapman. A sad end for a Grand Lady. We all miss you here in CDG...

A visitor from France posted Mon March 7, 2011:
We flew this lady in 2008, during our return flight from Caracas to Paris CDG. Sad end for this 20 years old aircraft !

Only 9 days short of it's 20th birthday.

Great shot!

I still find it hard to believe 747-400`s are being scrapped. It was like yesterday they were state of the art

A visitor from United States posted Fri March 4, 2011:
Looks like they have removed all of the doors; I wonder if they re-use them? Yes, it is sad to see such a magnificent machine being torn apart, but to me it is even more sad to see them "mouldering away" parked in a desert for years as if they were just "forgotten about".
At least this way they can be "recycled" and turned into something useful.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri March 4, 2011:
It's so strange to see a -400 like this, hardly seems like yesterday that they were brand new and the latest thing, whereas actually it was 20 years ago. Odd to think in 20 years time we'll see A380s meeting their end too :(

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri March 4, 2011:
Oh! Cut 400 series??????????? Are they mad?

Poor bird. At least she've had a happy life, including scuba-diving in the reefs of Thaiti during beach vacation.

A visitor from Iran, Islamic Republic Of posted Fri March 4, 2011:
Sad end indeed.

A visitor from France posted Fri March 4, 2011:
Too sad... I flew on her more than twenty times during ten years... you will miss to us Tengo Alpha
