Aventure Aviation has acquired for teardown a Boeing 777-2H6 (MSN 28417) airframe from Delta Airlines. It is being dismantled in Teruel, Spain by Tarmac Aerosave. All harvested parts will be inspected on-site, and shipped to Aventure's main facilities in Peachtree City, Georgia, USA, located near Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

"Once refurbished and recertified, the harvested parts will be available to end users on an exchange as well as outright basis," said Amyr Qureshi, Aventure's Senior Vice President, while overseeing the dismantling.

"This purchase is a continuation of our strategy to support our Boeing customers, notably freighter and international airlines," said Aventure Aviation Vice President, Talha Faruqi. "The Boeing 777 has become the most successful wide-body aircraft, and we look forward to supporting our customers for many years to come," he added.

Aventure is also considering the acquisition of several other Boeing and regional aircraft, focusing on end-of-life aircraft for dismantling purposes.
