In the years since this photo was taken, Evergreen International declared bankruptcy and sold off all of its assets. It no longer exists. As for N479EV, it was WFU and stored at KMZJ (Marana Pinal Air Park) in Arizona. A fairly recent pic of it on one of the snob sites shows it as partially scrapped but not dismembered.
