I am assuming that when aircraft are sold to airlines there is an expected service life figure. If any of these figures are known I would be interested in knowing which aircraft, on average have been retired 'early' ie. before the number of cycles, flying hours, or years quoted by the manufacturer was reached. And which have been retired 'late'. What are any of these figures (in cycles, flying hours, or years) for aircraft currently in service or production. One I think I know of for the retired late list - DC-3's!
