    Evergreen N485EV @ JFK

    Hi guys, just curious if anyone has any info on N485EV. Ive seen it sitting on the ramp for months in the same spot. Anything I can find on it says its stored in MZJ since last year, but thats obviously not the case.
    Regards,
    Bill

    It's hard to take chances but sometimes it's better if you do

    Evergreen lost their contract with the DoD, as far as I know. I guess they have no use for this 742 anymore, and they are stripping it where it sits.

    I heard it is just engine service, not a dismantling...

    What, seriously? It looks like they ripped the left outer engine off with a pair of safety scissors.

    When I passed there on tuesday on the shuttle bus it looked like it had tape around the the pylon, definetly looks like the engine was sheered off

    Coming home from work this morning and taking my preferred route down the Nassau Expressway past the cargo terminals for my daily dose of classic aviation (N475EV) and it's GONE! It's been there at least 2 years now, if I didn't get a chance to see anything else around the cargo ramp, I could always count on that. Anyone know where she went?
    Regards,
    Bill

    I seriously doubt it was flown out. Probably just moved elsewhere on the property.

    My best guess is that with the areas by the triple hangars needed for UN Week parking, they need the spot where Evergreen was for more daytime parking. Last time I drove by in the late afternoon, it was a line of LAN and TAM aircraft along that stretch.

    Evergreen has been taxing around all day. APU is running.

    Taxing under its own power, or with a tug?
