Re: What happens to the broken parts on aircraft after accident investigation is done?

It would just depend on if the salvaged parts could be overhauled to an airworthy condition. Heat damage would certainly make many parts not repairable (Red Tagged) and scrapped. Additional info. In a repair station, prior to being scrapped, Red Tagged parts are segregated in a locked impound area ...
