A longer time ago there was a thread about the 2 Iraqi 747s stored in Tunisia. It is a B747SP and the B747-270C YI-AGP.

Heard that the -200C was ferried to Uk about 2 years ago and that some work was done on them, but in the end they got not back into service. Has anybody an information wether the plane is still stored in UK? or was it a wrong information and it is still in Tunisia.

Unfortunately that's not true. YI-AGP is still in Tozeur (TOE).

I've saw lot of pictures a while ago (I cant' remember on which website it was...).

Here's one lucky bird that got away; former YI-AGN is now 5-8106 with the Iran Air Force.
