Recently Retired Commercial Aircraft Database (v2)

The old topic was closed: Recently Retired Commercial Aircraft Database

I thought I’d restart the old thread which was closed due to inactivity. The following aircraft must have been retired no earlier than 2010. All aircraft that are marked as “recently completed” must have been retired only in the past 2 years - articles on the topic of the retirement of the specified aircraft and airline, or even better, videos of the retirement/final flight, are permitted only for these aircraft. The following categories apply:

  • “in progress” - the retirement of an aircraft is currently underway
  • “defunct” - the airline aforementioned is no longer operating
  • “—“ - retirement of aircraft has been completed
  • “recently completed” - retirement was completed within the last 2 years

Hopefully this is interesting to some of you. Enjoy :)

Very nice list! Sad to see that so many airlines are retiring/have retired the 747… :(

You should add Meridiana.
They’ve phased out all the MD-80 since the 28th of February.


This is a video of the last Maddog of Meridiana/AirItaly Reg. I-SMER

Thank you.
Indeed it’s very sad 'cause Meridiana was the last operator of the type in Italy.

Just added this one. Actually they aren’t retiring the type, but they are slowly deleasing all of their A330-300s for 787-10. As A330-300s were only given to SIA for a short amount of time to compensate A380 and A350 deliveries’ delay

Virgin Atlantic are withdrawing their A340-600’s as more 787-9’s are coming online
