Do you ever think about what happens to an obsolete airplane once it is no longer useful? Many past-their-prime planes find a final resting spot in an airplane boneyard, where they sit and rot dejectedly among their fellow fuselages. Many of them remain technically airworthy, but they are parked in the dry desert or some remote place due to a slump in demand, hoping for an uptick in aviation and a chance to hit the clouds again. Others are cannibalized for scrap or dismantled for spare parts. It’s rather haunting to see these fleets of abandoned behemoths lying in their graveyards.
Take a look and see what we mean.
