70,000 hours? That’s crazy! It sure does deserve to be in a museum!

Weather will soon damage it. Its outside the hangars sadly.

How come it’s outside the hangars?

Wingspan issues. The hangars are full of other aircrafts.

Oh wow, that really sucks for the plane, that’s some pretty horrible negligence to the poor plane.

Add to that a Ju 52, a B737-200, an Avro Lincoln, and a helicopter.

I remember the rumble of the JT8Ds a couple of yards away from our car. Everything was shaking! 70,000 hours is ridiculous! Really sad that it’s out in the weather.

It flew with the same owner from 1981 until 2007. Then it was stored in 2012.
And it shows that with some maintenance, everything lasts.
