LH 747-200 On The Way Into The Dessert

Fri May 16, 2003 3:42 pm

A few minutes ago D-ABYX started in FRA as LH8856 on its way via PHX to MZJ. The last 747-200 D-ABZE will start tomorrow as LH 8858 (same routing).

Flightplan for bth aircraft (all times localtime):
FRA 08:00 - 10:25 PHX (05/16 and 05/17)
PHX 08:30 - 09:10 MZJ (05/17 and 05/18)

Good bye 747-200  Crying

I am fairly certain it would be customs.
The TSA was created to make the post office look efficient!

Yeah crew would have to clear customs and then take the plane to the desert for storage. No customs where she is going. Sad.

I wish I could bid them farewell (after unsuccessfully trying to be on the ferry flight), but I have to be away from FRA these days...

I saw this baby taking off right in front of my Aircraft parked at V172!
The other B742 is still in the maintenance area! Three days ago the left outboard engine was taken away i think for a Cargo B747!
Did the bring a new engine?

Would it be possible/allowed to ferry it with only 3 engines?
