My Google snooping has revealed that since the aircraft was already over twenty-three years old at the time of the accident, it was deemed uneconomical to repair and written off.

As for the current state of affairs, many of G-BNLL's parts now live on in other 744s in the BA fleet but the airframe is still structurally intact, hidden in the far south-western corner of the SAA maintenance area at FAOR (at least at the time this photo was taken in June 2014).

The building, though, is still in tatters!

The B744 was moved and is now standing at the SAFAIR hangers. They are busy removing all BA markings from the a/c.
