A) All reports are it's been bent with a B. One wing is
no longer fully attached, etc.

B) Most importantly, it's a 727. It will have lots of hours and
cycles. It's not worth that much flyable, much less needing million$
of rebuilding.

C) Considering they can not ferry it out to the desert.... you can
be sure it will be stripped of everything worthwhile. The carcass
will need to be chopped up and carted off, unless the O'Hare FD
wants it for a fire/rescue training prop.
