A sad end for a very >pretty airplane. :-( This airplane was located in Ardmore, OK. The remains are now located at MGM Studios and are used as a movie set. I understand it was used in 'Passenger 57'. It consists of the cockpit and first class section. The cockpit (with real instruments and functional) can be separated from the cabin piece and the cabin piece is split lengthwise so cameras can film either half of the cabin. This was paid for by Delta, so the outside is painted in Delta livery. The entire job was done by DL maintenance personnel.
