I just wonder what happened to the first of BAs 747-236B-fleet, G-BDXD in "Blue Poole"(Dolphin)-colours, that was retired about ayear ago. BA´s site says it has been sold. But to whom?

I once flew the 'Glider' to Chicago. This 747 which went through some volcanic ash over Indonesia I think and all it's engines failed!! I wonder if it is still in service??
