Six Iraqi Airways owned Boeing 727 and 707 aircraft kept in storage have been put up for sale by the Iraqi Ministry of Transport.

The four 727s and two 707s had been stacked at the Queen Alia International Airport, Jordan in early 1990s to evacuate the Iraqi Airways fleet during the Gulf conflict, Flight Global reports.

Other aircraft had been relocated to Tunisia; however, the plan for six airplanes to be restored and reintroduced into the airlines fleet did not make headway.

The airline has instead opted to buynew Boeing 737s and 787s and Bombardier CRJ900s through an Iraqi Government agreement.
