A very sad view of an old bird.

I know that we are only talking about planes, what is actually a lot of aluminium connected with eachother plus some cerosine and lot of noise with dirt and smoke, but if you look at this picture below, you'll feel sad. It is sad, because you give feelings to this machine and you feel like it would suffer, just take a look.

I saw that plane in a picture about two months ago. Apparently, the a/c skidded off the runway and caught fire. It has been a while so my info may not be correct.

Tis rather sad to see something wich had so much splendor and grace reduced to a moth-eaten, moss covered, delapidated wreck.

HMS Endeavor,

Lol, I bet that old plane has heaps of spare parts which could be sold off for a lot of money 😉

To be honest, this picture scares me, lol.

Yes, it's sad, but.. it's so eerie, it's like a "ghost-ship" (except it's a plane 😂 )

You know guys what is the craziest thing of all about this plane? This bird was perfectly intact after one missrouted landing during which engine #1 'kissed' the runway and was damaged, as you can clearly see on this photo. Nothing was done right after this incident whatsoever. The engines are busted anyway, after not being covered or anything for such long time, just recycling can right now. 😕
