Assume that at the beginning of 2000, Quick Travel, a FedEx competitor purchased a used Boeing 737 aircraft at a cost of 60,000,000. Quick Travel expects the plane to remain useful for 5 years (5 million miles) and to have a residual value of 5,000,000. Quick Travel expects to fly the plane 775,000 miles the first year 1,200,000 miles each year 2 through 4 and 625,000 miles the last year.
Compute Quick Travels first year depreciation on the plane using the following methods: Straight-line, units of production, double declining balance. Show the airplanes book value at the end of the first year under each depreciation method.
