It's Official G-YMMM is headed for the Knackers Yard

As we predicted on January 18th - The B737-200ER that had a lucky escape at LHR - is going to be headed for the scrap heap.

BA and the CAA have announced that the aircraft is beyond economic repair.

Interestingly - and I hope no one is superstitious... this aircraft is only the second 777 to be written off. The first one was a GE powered example that when returned to the Lessors by (old) Varig was so clapped out that they decided to declare it a write off and call for Steptoe. G-YMMM also spent a little time with (old) Varig. Let's hope this is not a trend
