Mon Jun 28, 2004 7:43 am

At The Science Museum in London, quite a while since i've been, but anyways, there is a disected BA 747 in Landor. I would suspect this to be a -100, does anyone know the reg???

It's painted as BA, but it was really a JAL plane if i'm not mistaken. They mention that on the display.

Armitage Shanks,

Yep, you're correct - the frame is an ex-JAL example.


It's c/n 20782, which was delivered to JAL as JA8118 on December 21st, 1973.
