Wingleted 727 In BOG. Any Info?

Thu Jun 22, 2006 10:42 pm

Last friday, I was driving in Ave El Dorado, passing all the hangars before reaching Puente Aereo, and in the hangar were the old 707 FAC001 used to be for a for a long time, I saw a beautiful wingleted 727 (Sorry, couldn't take any pic). It was white and had a big COSMOS on the fuselage. It was parked just outside the hangar facing the street, like if he wanted to jump over the fence. Anyway, 727s are one of my all time favourites ac, and since I haven't seen many wingleted ones, anyone has any info on this one? Is it a cargo ac, HK- registered and what's COSMOS (never heard of it)??


Thanks for your answers.

I did a search of wingleted 727's using the photosearch on the main page. Unfortunately, there is nothing with "COSMOS" on the sides. If you knew the registartion from the plane, you might be able to locate it that way, also using the photosearch page.

Unfortunately, since I was driving alone, didn't had the chance to check the reg #.

I was hoping of the colombian a.netters would know something about this particular ac, specially those who work in AV or at BOG.

Cosmos International is a rocket launch company (they specialize in low-earth satellite shots), so maybe this is a corporate jet for them.

I couldn't find a picture either on a.net or searching on google.

(google returns 8 zillion hits either for russian satellites, or carl sagan)
