Once again my question about the 742 names: 4 of those 8 remaining LH 742 still carried names of German states and capitals (NRW, Niedersachsen, Schleswig-Holstein, Kiel). Question to all FRA spotters: Did they still carry their names when they left for PHX/MZJ/MHV/etc.? Because I can't wait seeing those names on LH's newest 744s D-ABVX/Y/Z

When I went to see the grounded birds at Frankfurt Rhein-Main Military base 2 weeks ago, I could definitely make out Kiel and Nordrhein-Westfalen. The then other two aircraft parked there didn't carry a name, just registration.
But nice to hear, some of them are going to fly again.

Yeah I'm also very interested in the fate of YM. That plane just always was my favorite! The last time I saw it was a few weeks ago in FRA. It looked so sad with the covered engines... well you can see a few of those pics here on a.net or on my website... Just look for the "Tribute to the Lufthansa 747-200"...

I have been at the terrace and I could take the last FRA shots of D-ABZD. Really sad that I will never see her again. She passed the observation deck, said good-bye, rolled to 25R and took-off into the grey sky over Frankfurt.
Next to me, there was the pilot that flew her from Everett to FRA in April 1986...
I think he was remembering all those nice experiences he had with this bird...
