Looking to find out where SWA retires planes to? I've looked on google and can't find where they retire their planes to. I flew on n315sw last Aug. and heard from another site that it was to be retired this past Nov. 2011 and I can't find any info that it was retired when doing a reg. search and if it was were did it go to be broke up/ sold?

There we a few at various times at Tucson, KTUS, on the west side sandwiched between 3/21 and 11/29. I don't know the name of the company there, but they refurbish and sell the aircraft off to others or part them out.
On Google Earth, the 2011 coverage shows at least one WN 737 there on the NW corner of the company I mentioned above. coordinates are: Lat: 32-07-41.82 by long: - 110-57-33.0. Appears like it is a 737-3H3.
