The majority of surviving 1-11s fall into this category. None of these aircraft will ever fly again, in fact many are now derelict! Please update me with any further information as it is becoming extremely difficult to determine the status of the remaining 1-11 fleet..

That makes a total of 30 stored aircraft. A further 10 are preserved. Sadly It will be impossible to determine the final fate of many of these 1-11s. The majority of the stored fleet are now derelict with only a couple of aircraft remaining potentially airworthy! There may be a few more aircraft that have not been listed but I have no confirmation that they still exist. It has been reported that during the first few months of 2013 the remaining Nigerian 1-11s in storage would be scrapped. I await further news.
Former Indonesia Air Transport 1-11 PK-TST has been re-registered as PK-SSA. It is not known why?
G-AVMN now resides at the Panzer Museum in Fladholte, nr Slagelse in Denmark. It was moved from its previous location at the Bredlunds Bryghus, Slagelse in 2010.
TriStar History and Preservation Inc 1-11 N999BW is now listed as stored pending any further updates regarding its future serviceability.
Chrome Air 1-11 5N-UJC "escaped" from the dump at Lagos Airport. After having it's wings, fin and engines removed It was moved by road to Warri City where it is now located in a field and is used as an educational airframe.
The Former Rotec Industries 1-11 N111RZ still survives. It was dismantled at Rockford before being moved by road and then partially re-assembled at the Indian Hills Stables in Gilberts, IL (about 45 miles WNW of Chicago) during December 2008 / early 2009.
Trast Aero 1-11 EX-103 was re-registered as 4L-BAS for new operator Transaviaservice of Georgia by the end of 2009 but was never delivered. It was eventually cannibalised to keep EX-086 flying. EX-086 was finally ferried from Ras Al Khaimah to Riyadh in June 2010 while 4L-BAS was scrapped.
Romavia were operating YR-BRE for the Romanian Government. During 2007 it carried out trials with stage three hushkits fitted. Certification didn't take place and by the end of the year it was flying without hushkits once again. Although placed in storage for a considerable period of time, YR-BRI briefly returned to service during 2007 / 2008 but has once again been placed into storage pending a possible lease. YR-BRE stopped flying for the company at the end of March 2009. By October 2009 both aircraft had officially been withdrawn from service. YR-BRE will be put up for auction while YR-BRI will hopefully be preserved at Otopeni. Neither aircraft will ever fly again.
By 2010 QinetiQ 1-11s ZE432 and ZE433 had been permanently withdrawn from service and placed into storage at Boscombe Down where they were used as a spares source for ZH763! Both were scrapped during 2013 however the forward section of ZE432 has since been preserved at the Bournemouth Aviation Museum.
By November 2008 I can confirm that Compagnie Africaine D'aviation 1-11 9Q-CDY had been permanently withdrawn from use at Mbuji-Mayi.
Bournemouth Aviation Museum moved to a new location off airport and sadly stated that they couldn't relocate G-AZMF onto the new site. The aircraft was returned to European Aviation at the end of April 2008 for storage pending better news from the musuem. Unfortunately the aircraft was eventually sold which led to it being dismantled at the end of November and relocated to the Newcastle College Aviation Academy at Newcastle Airport.
Former Chanchangi 1-11 5N-BCG was ferried from Kaduna to Bishkek on the 4th March 2008 and re-registered as EX-215. It was initially thought that it was going to re-enter service but it turns out that it was acquired for spares only. There are plans for it to be used as a restaurant apparently!
Ex Sky King Inc 1-11 N101PC cn 073 has turned up at Castle Airport Atwater USA where it appears to have been stored for several years. It was thought that this airframe was scrapped at Sacremento in 2004!
Kori Air 1-11 N789CF is based at Topeka (Forbes Field) Kansas. Very little information has been received about this aircraft in recent years. It had been stored in a "climate controlled" hangar for six years and was in very good condition but unlikely to fly again. It's last flight was in 2002. It was eventually moved outside where it languished for a further couple of years but was rather surprisingly acquired by the American Flight Museum in the Autumn of 2014.
Former Albarka Air 1-11 5N-BBQ has been moved the short distance from Malta Airport to Hal Far disused airfield. It was moved by road on its own undercarriage and is now a trainer for the International Fire and Safety School. It's wings have been removed.
The former European Aviation cabin trainer G-AVMJ was moved from Farnborough, where it was on display with Farnborough Air Sciences Ltd, to Horton in Dorset. It was parked in the yard of Horton based haulage company Cook Transport. It has since been transported to West Herts College in Watford where it was used in conjunction with cabin crew training courses and has now been moved again to Tresham College, Kettering in October 2010. Out of interest the surviving forward fuselage of G-AVMK is now located at the Gravesend Police Training College, with a rear fuselage attached to it!
The preserved British Airways 1-11 G-AVMO was moved by road from Cosford to the Museum of Flight at East Fortune in September 2006. It has been re-assembled and was re-opened to the public during the summer of 2007.
9L-LDJ has now been moved to the Malta Airport fire training ground.
Three of the Aero Asia 1-11s were scrapped at Karachi Airport during December 2015. AP-BFC (YR-BRA) is still intact at Bucharest Otopeni.
Two ex Austral 1-11s survive at Moron Airport in Argentina. LV-OAX is on the fire dump. As of mid 2016 a bid has been made to try and save this airframe. (See 1-11 review of the year 2016) Meanwhile LV-MZM is used as a technical trainer with the National Institute of Civil Aviation (INAC).
The Eagle Aviation 1-11 5N-BDC overran the runway on landing at Libreville and was badly damaged. It was seen in October 2006 minus its wings!
The Hellenic Air 1-11 has been derelict at Athens Hellinikon for a number of years.
Kabo Air 1-11 5N-HHH was in storage at Southend and used by the fire service. It was given the fake registration G-FIRE and had Airport Fire Services titles placed on it. It was finally scrapped in 2014.
Two ex Ladeco 1-11s presently survive at the Santiago Los Cerrillos Museum in Chile. The other two in the fleet CC-CYF and CC-CYI were reported as derelict at the same site. I have now removed them from the stored list as scrapped. The full name of the museum is the Museo Nacional Aeronautico de Chile
Nationwide Airlines 1-11s were broken up at the end of June 2005 at Lanseria except for ZS-NUG which still remains intact.
All serviceable Nigerian 1-11s were grounded as of 9th May 2002. They are stored at various sites around the country and join large numbers of derelict ex Okada Air and Kabo Air aircraft. Sites include Lagos, Benin, Abuja, Kano. 5N-SEO is stored at Bucharest Otopeni. As of October 2016 it is assumed that they have all been scrapped.
Savannah Airlines 1-11 5N-BDU was written off by flying debris in Abuja during a storm in March 2002. It was still intact at the end of 2009.
One Ex US Air 1-11, N1117J, remains at Orlando Airport with the fire department.
