This appears to be more of a careful dismantling to study, than a shred and turn into beer can, project. I would be curious about the circumstances where a 20 year old aircraft is sectioned. Fatigue failure? Cycles? Hours? Very early hull intended for sectioning after use? Any sleuths out there able to shed light - BEGIN!

Maybe so the parts can be sold later with less than authentic point of origin documentation. No... that could never happen.

quick look, 12 777's have been scrapped (write offs not included), of those 12, only 2 were -300's, both belonging to JAL, delivered 10/1998, line numbers 152, and 158. The rest were -200's. Still curious.

Hi SmokeChops - I'll be updating the article, but Aircraft Demolition confirmed the aircraft had simply reached its economical life. When I get more info, I'll update.

Thanks!! - I would love to know the chronology (cycles/hours/yada yada yada). With so few scrapped, used parts are at a premium. I can see the economics side. Stored airworthy 777 can be had around the $16-18 million range. Part it out, cash it out.

JAL ran 777-300s on domestic flights as short as 45 minutes between Tokyo and Osaka (RJTT-RJOO). It looks like they still fly them up to Sapporo (RJCC) which 1.5 hours. I can see how regularly running that sort of schedule which quickly rack up a large number of cycles.

It's a typo on Aviation Week's part. It's NOT an ER.

What happened to the BA 777 at LAS??? It was here one day and gone the next it seemed like. I doubt it flew. And this weekend an AN-124 was here. Maybe flying the parts back up to Seattle?
