Lewiston/Auburn Maine AK Skywest sighting

Saw this today at Lewiston Auburn airport. This was in the same area and hanger used to fully restore/rebuild an old Connie for Lufthansa Airlines. It was a SkyWest jet with # N217AG registration. Any ideas? Scrap, parts, rebuild.?
Sorry, I’m trying to add the picture but am numb as a hake when it comes to technology.

According to planespotters.net, it's been stored there since February: https://www.planespotters.net/airfra...lines/EO7giwB9

Thanks. Thought it was kind of strange to see this in Maine and this particular airport. That’s a great link you provided.

Although I agree with you, there were times many years ago when the route was first established that a Q-400 would be the aircraft from SEA to SBA. I was quite happy when the CRJ came and now "ecstatic" that the E-175 and 737 have taken over that route.

Funny how things change. I remember flying SEA-LGB in an Horizon CRJ, and at the time thought it was the best aircraft ever!
