Probably going to DEE HOWARD to be repainted or have some maintenance work done for a future owner. I toured this facility in 2000 and there was a lot of high tech gadgets in the hangar. The ANA pokemon plane was repainted back to ANA colors at this facility. They also painted DLs first MD-11 in the interim colors here.

The aircraft would have been G-VCAT. It's going on to England to operate for European AirCharter. G-VRUM will follow on sunday.
