Not all planes come to die at Tupelo Regional
The plane, once owned by the Israeli airline and retired after a 21-year run, was brought in my Universal Asset Management earlier this year. But unlike most of the 747s, 737s and other aircraft broken down and recycled by UAM, this particular 757-200 didn’t come to Tupelo to die.
In fact, it’s the first plane UAM has refurbished and sold. It’s new owner is FedEx and is headed to California.
