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?

Looks like one of those fire training mockups to me...
