Sitting in the low winter sun waiting for the chop. One of about 8 stored here. Preparations are under way to the left to start dismantling two of them. Notice also Ryanair's answer to hushkitting, remove the engines.
Parked in front of the Rutaca hangars in Ciudad Bolivar, this AeroGal B737-200 without registration. According to most databases around this should be HC-CFR, sold to Rutaca in 2011, I presume for parts, as their flying business had already been reduced to minimal.
First flight March 20, 1982, this 737 was officially delivered to Monarch six days later. It's pictured at Luton after returning from a lease to Pacific Western Airlines (who leased it for the winters of 1983, 84 and 85).
