Does anyone know the history of the two sad looking planes at London Stansted? There is an old L1011 missing its engines. I have seen it being towed around for what appeared to be a pointless excersise - I'm sure it wasn't. And there is a 747 - I think a 200 - in AFX logo. Looks very dirty... the rudder area is covered in oil/hydraulic fluid. All engines are still attached.
Been doing some work up at STN for the past couple of months - sadly not airside - and wondered if anyone knew there history? The 747 hasn't moved an inch since Dec/Jan. Anyone with any ideas?
P.S I was too far away to get a registration.
