I saw on this photo by Chris Sharps on his way to the US on a NWA DC-10, you can see the Phuket Air 747-300 at the gate, why is it at a gate?

I thought the aircraft was grounded and I thought that Phuket Air had droped LGW?

Any help would be great!

According to the caption the photo was taken on Jan 29th, Phuket Air were still operating out of LGW then.
There is still a 9R aircraft at LGW (not sure if it is a 743 or 742SUD), it has been grounded by the CAA. Plenty of threads on the subject if you need more info.
