Who's 737's Are These... If You Can See Them?

Fri Sep 23, 2005 5:26 am

When I was in MEM back in May, I saw a 737-200 land there and taxi over to the FBO. It was too far away to see the reg number and when I took off I took a picture of them but my camera was NOT made for long distance shots. This is the picture I took and if you look in the middle you will see the 2 737s parked near the Gulfstream. I know the fuselage is all white and the tail is a very dark color (perhaps navy blue?). I was just curious as to who they might belong to.

Any ideas?

Looks like two ex AC 732's, although I could be wrong!  Smile

They look like two Westjet 737-200's for scrap.

Have been wondering that for awhile. Can't get close enough for ID yet. We seem to always have about 3 737s on that side. Two basically white and one with a gold tint on tail.

I believe the area behind them (east) that's been cleared above the new diagonally placed FedEx hanger is the start on the A-380 facilities. Any confirmation on that?

You're correct. All the land behind the diagonal hangar complex (known as Hangar 11 & 12, built in 1995 actually) is now being moved. There will be a new hangar capable of housing an A380 built adjacent to the existing hangars. Beyond that will be a ramp with spaces for 8 A380s.
