So What Happens to Old Airliners?

Apr 09, 2014 No Comments by

A recent visit by Aviation Week to Suttgart, Ark., revealed yet another former Lufthansa Cityline Bombardier CRJ700. Tail number D-ACPB, which arrived last week, is shown below awaiting part-out.

This aircraft joins D-ACPA and D-ACPG, both of which were flown farther north into Blytheville, Ark., last year for part-out. Stuttgart is home to CAVU Aerospace which is in the process of parting out a handful of other airliners including a Boeing 747-400, a 767-300ER, some 737-300s and -500s (below), two ATR 72s and two CRJ200s.

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
