Increasing numbers of Boeing 747s, including the SP version, are being retired from service. Some have found their way into aircraft museums or are used as tourist attractions, either 100% intact or sections. Others are simply abandoned and/or used as storage facilities.

 

Some were preserved as part of ambitious projects but for economic reasons failed and the aircraft were eventually scrapped, for example the ex Pan Am 747, N747PA, c/n 19639, that became a restaurant in Seoul but was cut up and scrapped, in December 2010, after the business had failed.

 

Several have been converted for use other than carrying passengers or freight. A few have been converted to VIP status with virtually no expense spared!

 

The list below is sorted by construction number (MSN - Manufacturer Serial Number). LN stands for Line Number.
