In addition to VS's G-VNAP taken out of LDE storage, another A346 has flown to AUH, it's ex MU B-6055 one of the birds stored at SZW. This according to Skyliner. Possibly heading for Mahan Air ?

Nice to see another A346 in the air a little longer.
Many happy landings, greetings from The Netherlands!

Didn't Boeing buy the MU A346s as part of the B77W sale?

See the VS leasing A332 thread, that aircraft is going back to VS to replace 789 flying while engines are worked on.

Wonderful news! Hope that she flies for many more years.

An A340-600 is quite an upgrade from a 787.

According to ATDB, B-6055 (ex-MU) is currently owned by Lufthansa Technik.
