Default Flange/Tail Pipe Removal - Bathroom Sink Drain

I am replacing the bathroom sink drain which is about 40 years old. It seems that the flange and tail pipe is one piece, instead of two, so I can't remove it. Is there a way to remove the flange and tail pipe? I was able to remove the trap section.

I would appreciate any help with this problem. Thanks.

Ted

You may have a sweated on tailpiece, that means that you have a copper drain line and you may have to unsweat or cut, and it can be repalced with a fernco rubber coupling or you can use a plastic coupling for tubular fittings.......good luck
