It's always sad to see airplanes sitting while awaiting their fate. Most of these planes will probably be chopped up and made into beer cans or something else. When I went to Roswell, NM, a few years back for my 30th class reunion, I went to the Roswell Industrial Air Center, and saw four of the B727's I used to fly on over in Europe, waiting to be chopped up and dismantled. Interesting how expensive these airplanes are and how we just "dispose" of them when the "government" thinks they've outlived their usefulness. That's one of the nice things about Europe; they don't destroy all their old buildings and actually enjoy having a little "history" exist.
