Questions Regarding One Of UAL's B747-400

Thu Apr 26, 2001 9:53 pm

Hi everyone!

A few years ago, I have heard that one of UAL's B 747-400 was put in storage and was sold. Can anyone confirm this for me? Also, if yes, when? Why did they do that?

That isn´t true. Maybe you got this fact wrong somehow: In 1992/3 United BOUGHT two 747-400s that had been stored for a year or so because the ordering airline, Northwest, was in financial trouble back then. They are flying for UA as N104UA and N105UA.

uhh.. Wasn't it N105UA and N106UA? (see Bill Harms' site and JP)

There were 2 747-222 in storage for a period; they were sold to NW for conversion to freighters.
