About 15-18 years ago the market fo F100 dropped like a stone and a little consortium got 17 F100's with melted interiors out of the Nevada Desert for about 1m Euros each and kitted the interiors out and resprayed them for another 1m Euros each....The birth of Germania.

With the current sudden drop in market value of several dozens of fleet compatible jets they will likely be stored in some desert (or heavily paid to be scrapped by worried groups like IAG) - and with so many people laid off jobs where they think they could do better - I believe the makings of a new budget airline, or even a private airline, is in the offing....
