BA747-200 G-BDXO - New Operator

Fri Apr 25, 2003 9:45 pm

Some pictures on the net show that G-BDXO, the only 747-200 of BA in the beautiful Paithani colours, has returned from the desert recently.
Who has an idea who the new operator will be? European/EAL maybe?

Apparently EAL will use it for spares

For spares?
This aircraft is younger than any other aircraft in the EAL fleet. Can´t believe that. It would be the youngest 747 ever to be retired then. Less than 16 years old it should be fit for about 10 years more service! Strange when you see that other 747s in EALs fleet are actually that old!

I think you'll find Air Atlanta have acquired it.
