Today, scrapping of the 707 at the former airport Tegel has begun :( The windows were cut out to sell them later in an auction. After 35 years at Tegel, it is time to say goodbye to our classic...

I hate to see all aircraft of one type go to scrapper! The most painful for me was the beautiful Tu-114 at Domodedovo Airport in Moscow. It was scrapped about a year after I passed through going toLondon. I thought at the time - they will never scrap it. Wrong.

This aircraft never actually flew for Lufthansa and the registration is fake. It actually is ex EL AL 4X-ATB, EL AL's second 707 delivered in 1961. Pictures from the inside still have El Al's historic panes with a drawing of Tel Aviv-Jaffa. The history summarized in link below:

Perhaps they thought it was getting rusty and nothing could be done. All that was needed was a good scrubbing and a fresh coat of white paint. I have done the 727 at Hellenikon myself. Who in his right mind would destroy an intact 707, complete with engines? They do not love them.
