Apologies if this is a repeat thread; couldn't dig up anything via search though.
Driving past Filton (FZO) on the way to Cribbs Causeway for the dreaded Christmas shopping, I noticed 3 Transaero 747s (1 744) parked. I could have sworn that the 744 was ex-BA; blue RRs etc. Can anyone confirm the status of these birds?
They are mainly using the 747s on holiday flights. There are huge numbers of Russians flying to Southwestern European holiday destinations and Turkey. So much so that in many places Russian is the no.3 of foreigners language after English and German.
