Check this out folks!
Can this be real? Can USAirways really be scrapping a perfectly good 767?
One of those we loved so well?

O.K., I found the story on airliners.net
Here is what they said....

"Written off after no. 1 engine explosion and resulting fire during maintenance testing, 22-Sept-2000, at Philadelphia."

I had never heard that before. If you go to airliners, they have some good pics of the jet before that happened.

Research from the internet led me to this document from the NTSB

Steve, This incident was alot worse than you may be aware. I worked CLT Heavy Maint for 10 years since it opened. The information we recieved was the wing and center fuselage section was extensivly damaged from the engine and the subsequent fire. The forward spar was severed above the pylon by the turbine wheel as it departed as well as many other smaller pieces. Boeing and USAirways decided it was not worth the expence to repair the a/c. This airplane is far from being perfectly good!

O.k., formerly new aircraft - now useless.

It's worse than I thought!
I found many many pics of perfectly good Boeing 737-400s sitting abandoned, butted and in shambles where USAir has gotten rid of them.
What's so astounding is they were delivered in Fall of 1988, just weeks after my Wife and I got married. I remember most of them, cause I boarded the very first Piedmont flight using the 737-400.
It was the Thomas H Davis Pacemaker.
I was upset enough to see them parking 737-300s in the western desert to resell or use later, but this.....scrapped, taken apart, as new as they are....
It's almost a sin.
These airliners cost around 40 Mil if I am correct in my memory and was supposed to last a good airline minimum 20, max over 30 years!
Anyone else upset by this situation?
Or is this directly related to "the bankruptsy?"
Would have expected they at least be used by another airline who is worthy of them!

Yes Steve, this kind of thing makes my blood boil too. Like I said on another thread, destroying good aircraft should be illegal.

Thats the problem there is no other airline worthy of an ex-piedmont acft.All the waste that Usair imposed on itself out of spite towards PI was nothing short of a crime.Remember how much it cost to build up BWI so that Usair could basically sell it off to a start up outfit called southwest.They now own BWI and Usair is almost gone.One of many fine decisions that has landed them where they are today.They should have never progressed past running mail mules across the Alleghany mountains.No bitterness here though..lol

Did anyone think of turning that Boeing 767 into a restaurant or a lounge?

There is precedent for such conversions. I understand there used to be such a restaurant which made use of a Lockheed Constellation in Philadelphia. In Colorado Springs, an Air Force C-97 also serves as a restaurant (last time I checked the tourism literature).

Or the aircraft could have been donated to a museum. United Airlines has donated some of its Boeing 727s to museums in Chicago and Seattle, for example. What are your thoughts?

A problem with donating it to a museum would have the cost of dismantling, transporting, and re-assembling. A/C 654 was probalny worth a fair amount in spares and scrap. As I understand it, GE's insurers paid for the plane, since it was a fault in the engine that caused the catastrophic failure.

A good thing this happened on the ground and not in the air!
