I just saw Photos of it arriving at Dublin & getting painted all-white, what's going on here? Anybody else taking her up?

Cheers - Vishal

The King of Jordan decided not to take it in the aftermath of the Arab spring protest last year, as it would be seen as too expensive and off showy. Probably it's being prepared for another VIP or storage.


nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

Are you sure? I think it left TLS for outfitting.

Absolutely NO INFO in there ^ whatsoever.

A question i'd like to ask is, If they already had it stripped to that brown primer or whatever it was then why paint it White if its hardly flown or done anything?
Doesn't look like anyone's buying it because if someone was then why not just paint it in their colours?

Searching for F-WWCP.. the first pic in the database claims that the frame has been re-registered as A7-AGA, with Qatar. Lots of pics in the database with that reg.

F-WWCP is a 'dealerplate' of Airbus, they use the same registrations time and again during the test and delivery phase. You'll also find tons of 737s which are ex N1986B but these not the same airframe. You have to look at the construction number, A7-AGA is cn 740, the Jordanian is cn 924.

F-WJKG was in Basel (BSL) for a long time, it arrived on 1 Jun 09 from AMM in full Jordanian colours with a Jordanian callsign (reported to be for outfitting). On 15 Dec 11 and 28 Feb 12 (and probably on other dates as well) it did lengthy test flights BSL-BSL. On 20 May 12 it was reported at BSL in yellow primer. On 2 Jun 12 it arrived DUB from BSL in yellow primer, was painted into an all white scheme, and departed again back to BSL on 13 Jun 12.

Jordanian government aircraft now tend not to wear Royal Jordanian colours (they now wear standard "exec" colour schemes - are any left in RJ colours?) and are largely registered in Bermuda (e.g. VQ-BCE G450, VQ-BDD A318), so it may just be that this aircraft is following that trend.
