Hard to believe that this is the first photo of DL planes at this airport. Cue the photographers shooting from helicopters in 3.....2.....1

What was inside the leading edge of the vertical stabilizer that was apparently worth salvaging? I note the access ports on all of these are open and gone. Radio antennas? What? To anyone who answers: thank you.

I had the same question; I have no idea. I thought that maybe there was an APU air inlet duct there, and an intake at the top of the stab? But I am not sure.

The missing panels on the sides of the vertical stabilizer are the VOR antennas which are salvaged. The panel on the top is removed to salvage the horizontal stabilizer trim motors.

Is it the few in the back that might be MD-88 and we can tell by the height of the fin above the horizontal stabilizer?

Picture might be recent, but none of the fleet numbers that we can see are recent retirements (latest was late 2019). So this may still not be the set that was retired in June. I agree, I've not seen a single photo.

The MD-88s in back still have tail cones, so they might still be in storage.

Was never a fan of the mad dogs but this photo is still a gut punch.
