Another Movie Prop At Heathrow?

Fri Aug 04, 2006 1:58 am

This is an interesting one (I could not find a previous reference to this in the forum archives). The attached url points to a google maps image of a plane that resembles a DC-10 with its wings clipped just beyond the pylons, and its tail shortened considerably.

Strange plane

Does anyone know the story behind this?
