FLEET UPDATE: Aerolineas Argentinas offers for sale retired 737-200's and 747-200's

Aerolineas Argentinas recently put up for sale several of its retired 737-200's and 747-200's.  The airline has more than a dozen such aircraft parked at Buenos Aires Ezeiza (EZE) and other locations with most apparently being too derelict to fly again.  The examples being offered for sale are presumably airworthy or can at least be used for spare parts.

Aircraft were available for viewing at Buenos Aires Ezeiza (EZE) between 30Jun14 and 04Jul14 with offers being accepted at Aerolineas' headquarters until 14Jul14.

The specific aircraft are:
