Hi, i just came back from my x-mas trip to Oz and on the way from MEL to the Surfcoast I noticed again (while passing by on the freeway) a light-blue-metallic painted 747 with a red tail (no Kangaroo) standing outside the (maintainance)-hangar at Melbourne-Avalon Airport. I have noticed it everytime i passed by there in the last 3 years. Does anyone has an idea what it is??? Training for Engineering? Any info appreciated.

A couple of years... More like 6
Anyway, there are all types of speculation about it. People are saying it will be scrapped, others are saying it will be an undercover wreck for divers to explore. Honestly, who knows. Its been sitting there for so long, may as well become the Avalon mascot.
