N777UA's future is in question.
I'm sorry, but since DL has a 762, 747 (which should be in NW colors), 757, and DC-9 preserved, while UA can't be bothered to save practically anything, it's hard for me to be that sympathetic to your plight. Be thankful they saved one.

But instead of being preserved in a museum or even finding a second life with a new operator, it is nothing but memories and luggage tags now. With how historic that frame was and how much coverage SQ 380 got at the time, you would have expected it to find a new home but instead it ended up being scrapped to.
The Gimli Glider also got scrapped I think, but at least that one had a long service life even after its gliding incident. 9V-SKA was retired before its 10th birthday and was scrapped at the young age of 12 years.
