I took my camera out to BUR (07/09/10) and got this Boeing 727-2S7/Adv (N686CA)/(cn 22021/1617) on video still in full Champion Air colors with titles and all. I've heard it's ready to be painted to possibly be used as a VIP aircraft. Are there any others out there with titles and all? I thought some of you may enjoy seeing a classic especially since Champion Air has been out of business since May 2008, enjoy.

N685CA is still in full c/s and titles in front of Lloyd Aéreo Boliviano's hangar in Cochabamba, Bolivia, since April 2008. It was meant to join the semi-dead airline's fleet together with some other ex-Champions, but 685 was the only one that made it to Bolivia and apparently with incomplete paperwork so the authorities never granted it a CofA.
N-reg was cancelled on 9/22/08, but never painted-out on the aircraft as no CP- reg has since been allocated. The aircraft will thus die "in limbo", in all likelihood.
