There was two times Eastern was going to buy Boeing 747s, but both time it did not work out. The first time was when they order 747 125 from Boeing, but cancel the order in favor of the Lockheed L1011 Tristar. They ended up just leasing 747 from Pan Am until the Tristar was delivered. The second time was when they was trying to start a MIA-LHR routes using ex-Qantas 747 238 with Pratt engines, there was even one with Eastern livery on it. But Eastern lost the route to Pan Am and started an MIA-LGW route with DC10-30s instead. I know all the 747 125 went to TWA and became 747 131 ( sadly one them was flight 800), and the two ex QF 747 238 end up in People Express fleet. What I am asking is, where are these planes today? Are they flying cargo around the world, in the bone yard or doing second hand passenger service? I always thought Eastern should have had 747s in there fleet, and any 747 that came close, I would like to know some information on it.
