A riot, but how true ??  I was amazed to see at least several 747's,
Airbuses, and L-1011's rotting in semi-scapped condition in Ardmore
Oklahoma.  While they had been used as planes for salvaged parts (door
frames,slats and flaps,engines,interior,etc), the majority of the
airframes were intact.  Are the airplanes as valuable as old beer cans
for aluminum?
