Parked Jet Photos

We had some photos showing up in other threads. Thought I’d start one dedicated for photos of parked jets. Poor Chester.

These ones are from a friend at PDX.

Apologize if obvious question, but quick research didn't yield an answer. Why do many in the forefront have red "X's" while those in the upper left do not?

It's possible that the ones in the back were parked more recently and haven't had their pitot tubes/instrument probes covered yet. The planes in the far background are all Airbus'. Their pitot tubes/probes are a little lower on the fuselage compared to the 737s and may be harder to see from this distance, assuming they've been covered yet.

Parked at OAK

Saw 8+ AS parked at OAK earlier. Handful of WN as well. Snapped a pic of them near the FedEx area but am not able to post as new user... I’m optimistic they’ll be back in the air soon.

Thank you RAD_PDX for your informative reply. Unfortunately, whenever I read/hear pitot tubes I think of Air France 447 for some reason as that's when I realized how important they can be.

Does anyone know if Salmon -30- Salmon is still flying? It is my favorite Alaska plane (from a design viewpoint) and I finally got to fly on it in the fall of 2019 from JFK-LAX. I finally got to see the plaque from the inside!

Doesn't appear to be at the moment. Last scheduled flight was end of last month and that was cancelled

Birgenair Flight 301 is a good example of how important it is to keep them covered, or at least inspect them closely before flying when the aircraft is going to be out of service for even a few days.

I remember driving in desert California near mojove and seeing this random collection if pkabes almost like a private collection if about 1-2 plane per airline.
