"Juan T. Trippe", the second B747 in Boeing production line and the first B747 delivered to airline(Pan Am) is spending her rest life in Korea. She has been moved to here(east surbub of Seoul) in Jul.'00 and used as restaurant but it was closed and neglected for long time. So sadly its state is very bad...Wings are removed by Korean construction law and only fuselage is preserved with fake engines and wings. No. 2 engine intake is covered with food menu.

What a sad sight ... an aircraft that would deserve a nice and dry place inside a museum in old PAA color... I wish I had the money

I just visited this site on the weekend and saw the interior. Unfortunately it's been allowed to decay as much on the inside as on the outside.

This historic 747-121 deserved to be preserved at a museum. Sad sight, because it is in a semi-derelict condition.

Hey, I've eaten on that plane! Of course, it was flying and said Pan Am on the side of it back then!

Great old plane. Too bad no buyers were found. Scrapped in place December 13th, 2010.

I thought the first 747 delivered to Pan Am was destroyed in the Tenerife accident with a KLM B747? Anyway, she does not deserve this...

A sad end to a famous & historic aircraft. Given that Pan Am was one of the most recognisable airlines in the world, you'd think that they would've taken better care of it.

It's not there any more. The owner of this aircraft(building) demolished it several months ago. So sad...

THIS IS A VERY BIG SHAME! The real queen of skies shouldn't be treated like that! She must be in a museum so she can be seen in the next centuries. I never saw this one but I'm so sad to see the queen in this condition.
