Amazing how it was once a B747 haven, a lovely mix of SP/200/300 and 400s!

Re: G-GATK, LGW-LHR tonight

Cheers, I've seen a few GAT* visit in the past.
If it is maintenance would this be why the EI 320s have been sent in to cover the BA birds that have
been sent down to LGW in order to allow these frames to be maintained?
Maybe BA source again?!! :scratchchin:
