Nope, dont know anyone at LHR who has either. When they come in the park up at remote stands. Have driven up there a few times to try and get a closer look but security is too tight and you can get no where near.

I've seen them at LAX at times when I was working with F9. I actually got close enough to snapped a few pics of them, because I knew from research HM6 is the 249th Tristar & HM5 is the 250th and last Tristar built. Regards.

Also HZ-HM6 was plane white for the longest time before they painted it the same as HM5, and was registered in either Cayman islands or Bermuda.
The insides are amazing. Gold everywhere.
