Ex-BA 747-100s

Mon Sep 04, 2000 6:18 pm

Have any of the former BA 747-100s changed ownership since their retirement. I know that at least one was broken up in the UK (G-AWNA?) and another was sold to a Middle East operator (Falcon leasing?). What of the remainder, are they still intact. Also does anyone know the scheduled retirement date of BAs 200 series 747s? Thanks, Chris.

I read something about a retirement date of September 2002, but hopefully somebody can confirm or correct this.
