Aircrafts in storage


What could possibly be more sad than looking at the below image of aircrafts withdrawn from storage in favour of “storage”. The white aircraft in the front is hard to identify, but the nearest Thai Airways aricraft is registration HS-TAO, an Airbus A300B4-622R which flew under the name Chantaburi. This aircraft was delivered on April 21st 1992 and was withdrawn from use on June 30th 2013. A year later, on August 22nd 2014, it was sent to be “stored” at Don Muang aiport in Bangkok (DMK) before it was broken up on site some time in 2015. Hence, this dated image must have been taken some time at the end of 2014 - beginning of 2015. The other aircrafts are as far as I can see, unidentifiable, but the NOK Air hiding behind the Thai A300, would most likely be a Boeing 737-400. As far as my documentation goes, it could be either HS-TDB “Phuket” (stored at DMK from 06.2012) or HS-TDE “Surin" Stored at DMK from 10.2012). I place a bet on HS-TDE.
