757 Teardown Complete – Parts Ready to Ship
Aventure Increases Inventory to Boeing 757/767 Customers

Aventure Aviation's Boeing 757 during teardown in Tuscon, Arizona.

Aventure Aviation has completed harvesting the parts of a Boeing 757 aquired in November 2017. The aircraft, registration N533UA (MSN 25073), was last operated by United Airlines.

Approximately 2,000 removed spare parts are now located in Atlanta. High demand parts have been refurbished and fresh tagged, while others are awaiting MRO shop selection or are in "as removed" condition.

Parts Offered for Impending 737NG Teardown

Aventure Aviation has started to sell parts from a retired Boeing 737NG. The teardown has been scheduled to start this month.

The landing gear shipset has significant time remaining before overhaul, which may interest customers contemplating retiring portfolio aircraft with this requirement.

Also available is the auxiliary power unit, thrust reversers, engine cowls, and all installed parts. REQUEST PARTS LIST >
