The Funbird To Be Scrapped

The once-proud "Funbird" retro jet of the now-gone Aloha Airlines looks like it will never fly again. According to the Airchive.com site, N823AL "Liholiho" (c/n 23154, l/n 1078) is shown being parted out at MHV. It was acquired by Skybus LLC in June 2008. 

It seems like it has not been six years since I had the opportunity to photograph the arrival of the "Funbird" was re-introduced to the Aloha Airlines fleet, as the airline celebrated its 60th anniversary (photo above) in 2006.
