What a sad fate...travel the world only to be chopped up in Tulsa. She's too young.

Great catch! Although it's sad to see D-ABVE's last approach before being scrapped :(

Such a terrific image, but what a sad ending for the Lufthansa 747. While I realise the end must eventually be inevitable, for it to be "chopped up" is a heartbreaking description for such a fine machine.

The aircraft couldn't possibly be 33, as the 744 has only been in service for 24yrs!

Ya right bud, the gal is 23. VE started service in 1990. My mistake. I made her older than she is. Sorry ´bout that. Gosh, being scrapped at the age of 23 makes it even worse.

I love this shot because of its timing and the depth, both in the image and due to the comment from the photographer about the 747 behind the 757’s jetwash. =)

It is really sad to see her in her last minutes of flight. I sure it's been an interesting life.
