S7-4 (Learning Objective 3: Compute depreciation and book value by three methods—first year only) Assume that at the beginning of 2011, Fast Delivery, a UPS competitor, purchased a used Jumbo 747 aircraft at a cost of $44,400,000. Fast Delivery expects the plane to remain useful for five years (6.5 million miles) and to have a residual value of $5,400,000. Fast Delivery expects to fly the plane 725,000 miles the first year, 1,225,000 miles each year during the second, third, and fourth years, and 2,100,000 miles the last year.
