Does anyone know where the Heavylift Shorts Belfast has gone? I live in Cairns and bike past the airport each day on the way to university. I'm am missing seeing the old girl parked up with a protective wing over her 727-100 companion. Still an F27 is hanging out there, so I am getting my fix of classic metal each day.

I had read about the one at Southend being broken up. I think they took the engines and other parts for the one out here. At least the one here in Cairns is still operational.... hopefully? In August it dissappeared for a week or so as it was on a charter. This time it has gone for quite a while. I hope its is not getting pensioned off.
What goes around comes around....unless your luggage is not on the carousel...

I couldn't believe it when I saw it in CNS last year. I didn't know there were any flying, let alone in Aus. My partner couldn't understand why I was having an attack when I spotted it. I had to explain how obscure they are.
