I see an airborne Super Guppy right now with Davis-Monthan as the destination.

Is this its funeral flight to the boneyard?

Nope. It is scheduled for two trips to Seattle to deliver parts of the Shuttle Trainer to the Museum of Flight. Once on the 26th of July and then again on August 9th.

Would be nice if after the last delivery to Seattle it just stayed at the Museum.. however I suspect there will be other missions yet for this bird.

An amazing whale of a pregnant bird.
The last of its kind still doing the oversized deliveries.
Hope it will still be in the air for a long while more.
This example must be part of the fleet that used to be the subject of the "Every Airbus is delivered on the wings of a Boeing" joke. Was it one of the two new French-builts?
