Remarks: While rumors of Varig's demise continue to circulate, one fact is certain:
With the starboard engine still missing and now the endine areas wrapped and taped, this 777 will not be in service anytime soon.
Remarks: Can you spot the 3 airlines represented here?
United...notice how the rudder is turned slightly? Right at the top of the gold star, you can begin to see the sliver of the United paint underneath.
Pan Am...on the hangar behind.
Remarks: The first time I saw Ruben, it had a 75th anniversary scheme on it. Today, not ONLY is it no longer with that scheme, its also missing a starboard engine?!
Its a shame to see a relatively new airliner sit like this. She belongs in the air! What is the story behind this plane?
