On November 17, 2006 it was sold to the Bahrain Government. It was entered onto the Bahrain Aircraft Register as A9C-HAK on January 01, 2007. Operated by the Bahrain Royal Flight it continues to fly on a regular basis to many destinations around the world.

Unfortunately Bahreïn Royal Flight doesn't have any 747SP in the fleet anymore, HAK has been replaced by another 747-400. The main fleet is now 2 744 + 1 764 + 1 RJ 85 (and some Gulfstream jets).

Gosh, I hope the air museums across the world are trying to get one of these. Would love to see them all get saved! I would love to have one for my backyard! Maybe we can start a GoFund me to save these rare birds? LOL! In all seriousness, it crushes my soul to see a single SP get scrapped. :(
