Whatever happened to the infamous N73711? Was it fixed and put back into service, or was it used for fire drill training? Reason I'm asking is that planes involved in accidents seem to show up later, still in service. Anyone remember UAL's 747 where the cargo door ripped a nice chunk of fuselage off? That plane remained in service for many years, if it isn't still.

We see that United 747 daily here at SFO. Leaving for Hawaii in the evening.

That is a scary thought...seeing that plane daily might drive me to seek a new hobby.

N73711 was written off and broken up. Some of Aloha's other 737s of the same vintage were also removed from service 1988-1991 and broken up...

That one is now in your ice box as a cold Miller Lite can....

Yes, I would also like to know the tail number of the United 747. I'll be on one next Monday flying from HNL to SFO, and I'd like to know if I'm on that one. I know it was posted here a long time ago, but I don't know how to search for it. Thanks.

Guys - according to the NTSB records the reg no. of that United 747 is 4713U. I guess that would be N4713U.

According to the 747 Census that plane was re-registered by United as N4724U, but it is no longer with United. It is now owned by Air Dabia under the registration C5-FBS, however it is apparently "out of service."

What JumboTim said is right, Air Dabia was a Gambian airline that never got off the ground. I'm assuming the plane has just been abandoned.

It's normal for airlines to re-register planes that have been involved in serious accidents. The reason is obvious, if someone boarding the flight recognised the plane they may kick up a fuss and scare other passengers etc...
