Heads up for Cardiff Spotters or those who can make it there. CX3335, B-HIH 747-200F ex-Cathay Pacific is headed your way and due to arrive tuesday afternoon at 16:30local. It has it's titles removed apart from the rudder. I assume it will have a registration change and then head to Kemble for scrapping, as this is what happened with B-HVY a while back. Not sure when it is due to fly out of Cardiff.

B-HIH appears to have about 30 minutes to go before arrival in CWL.
Callsign is, as advertised, CPA3335.
I also believe it is due to clear customs etc. and then head to Kemble for scrapping.

I feel a trip to Kemble coming on soon to see the increasingly exotic collection there (before they are scrapped).

According to the Cardiff blog ( http://cardiffstathan.blogspot.com/ )

B-HIH landed at CWL at 1551 and the crew reported that the aircraft is there "for ever" and that they are off to London and home.

Doesn't look likely it is headed for Kemble.
