RE: 3 DL 747's Retire

I have been hoping to see one of our intrepid photographers would post some pictures of the B747-400's in storage at Marana. Nothing so far.

Quoting Boeing717200 (Reply 99):
DL dumped everything with two engines when they unloaded the L-1011s and MD-11s. Delta has probably been looking for a reason to dump the 747s since the day they merged with NW.

I think you better look at your statement about the L1011s and MD-11s.

Only if their country has a national identity card that serves the same purpose as a passport for travel within Europe. Not all countries do. The UK doesn't. They used to have one but it was abolished a few years ago so as far as I know British citizens need a passport to travel anywhere outside the UK.

According to Wikipedia, other European countries without national ID cards are Denmark, Iceland, Ireland and Norway.
