I haven't been in a scrapped plane, and I've (for some reason) never been to an airport where they are held.

Delta 727s

ABQ757- The last I heard was Delta is scheduled to retire their last 727 in 2005, so you still have a chance with them. I'm not sure if that has changed, but I saw that on delta.com a few months ago.
Hope that helps!

Executive Decision was pretty good, but they messed up some details of the plane, like there is no lower galley on the 747-200 (to my knowledge), and all the flight manuals say "Boeing 747-400, " when the plane is actually a 747-200.

Plus they were refurbished and hush-kitted recently which could keep them here a while. They have already retired some (if not all) of their DC-9-10s. 717 wouldn't ...
