#thenewscompany : VAS Aero Services, a global leader in aviation logistics and aftermarket services, announced it has acquired two Boeing B737-700 aircraft for teardown and subsequent parts harvesting and marketing.
VAS will manage the teardown of both aircraft at Marana, AZ, with disassembly scheduled to begin in Q1 2023, adding to the vast number of Boeing aircraft that VAS has disassembled over the years.
