Boeing planes abandoned for 10 years auctioned off for scrap

Stripped and scrapped: One of the Boeing jets being demolished at the Senai International Airport following the auction.

JOHOR BARU: Three Boeing 747 aircraft – once worth tens of millions of ringgit – have been sold at a public auction for only RM800,000 after being abandoned at the Senai International Airport for many years.

The successful foreign bidder, believed to be an aerospace scrap recycling company, has since started demolishing the aircraft.
