114000 flight hours is very much, I´m pretty sure it must be the 747 record holder. I read only some NWA DC-10s had more when retired. Makes me wonder, how many hours the original quartet of 742Fs of NWA have, which in years are about 4 years older than B-HVY. Surely they also have reached the magic 100000.
B-HVY has saved CX very well and obviuosly was worth every penny. Good Bye to it.
Quoting QF744ER (Reply 2): Speaking of hours of B742's, I'm told the ex ANZ/Transaero ones have some huge hours up on them.
Some months ago it was reported here they also have passed 100000 hours, or even 110000.
