Has The Last United 747-400 Left The Desert?

Sat Apr 28, 2007 1:07 am

I see that according to ATDB.org that United's stored 747-400 (N185UA) of the 8 that were stored at Victorville is now in Pusan, South Korea. This would be then the last of the stored 747's parked after 9/11. I just saw this aircraft 3 weeks ago in Victorville and it was a long way from being airworthy so I assume it flew out in the last 3 weeks or ATDB.org is incorrect. This aircraft is slated for Air India and has been in storage in Victorville for over 6 years. Can anyone verify that it did fly to Pusan and the date?

The last UA 744 I can find departing VCV was on 3/25 which flew to SFO as UA9933 but no onward flight plan.

I know and that is what has me puzzled---I saw the aircraft in early April in Victorville so I think ATDB.org is wrong but want to make sure before I inform them.....
