RE: Scrapping Of 757s

From what I know about G-PIDS from former work colleagues, that is a bad aircraft ! Do they still perform D checks on 757s ? Here we do a lot of 757 and 767 heavy maintenance, and on the 757 we do up to C4 and SC8, which apart from the external paint strip, is pretty much a D check anyway !
