First flight 3.6.83. The last day as the scrapman takes only a few hours to turn this 757 into a pile of scrap metal.

Please stop the mourning! That's the destiny every airliner will have to go through.
BTW nice scene caught in the photo, although it looks a bit awkward because of all the green and the trees. Makes it very interesting to look at!

Great composition!
Agreed, not quit a "dynamic" view like this, but better for a plane come on this way to the and of its live, than make an accident with the lost of lives..

Nicely compsed indeed. It's better to see it go this way rather than a mountain side with lots of smoke around it.

Nice image. I noticed the flight deck has been separated from the rest of the fuselage. Would make a great simulator platform, heh!!!

Always makes me sad whenever i see an aircraft being chopped up so brutally. With all the technology thet goes into flying these birds, you would think that would be a more high-tech method of dissasembly.
BTW, where the hell is Lassham?

This is a poigniant picture, and not one that you see everyday. It tells a story of life and death (especially when you look at the other pictures of G-MCEA in her glory days). I admit it caught me by surprize: that it was a 757 (glass cockpit and all). Usually you would expect this to be a 707 or DC-8s in this type of situation.

It doesn't matter if they all end up in scrap. It's sad to watch them go.

Sad pic, Once a mighty part of Eastern Airline's fleet (-225), now reduced to beer can fodder.

Composed nicely!
All those comments sound as if your grandma had died. Stop it! It's just a piece of metal and plastic.

Certainly a very unusual photo: am intrigued by the vantage point also - was the photographer in the air? BTW, Lasham is in Hampshire, southern England. An ex-RAF wartime base near Basingstoke now very popular for gliding.

I agree with the contribution from Germany. No-one wanted to fly G-MCEA, so what are the leasing company who owned it supposed to do start a musem ? Nothing is sadder than anything slowly rotting. Boeing built it to fly up to 233 pax and that is what it has done for the best part of 25 years. Now it is gone. The previous operators ( fairly easy to identify) have moved on, so must all you enthusiasts. It wasn't the first or last 757. Boeing will probably make sure one is kept for posterity.

A sad day. I started my flying career on this aircraft out of Glasgow as cabin crew and have many fond memories of night charters with another full load. Things move on and nothing lasts for ever, but it's still sad to see her go. She will live on in many memories and pictures.

Sad to see an aircraft being destroyed but as a big fan of airbus the fact that this is boeing a/c makes me feel slightly better. a380 is the best you can forget all the rest.

It's sad to see the demise of these great man made machines. Somehow, I always think that each aircraft almost takes on its own personality and ipso facto -' has rights' - nonsense I know but thats my opinion.( Irish Reader)

Interesting picture. The cockpit is actually destined to be the cockpit set for United 93, the film coming out in 2006!
