Kuwait Airways Retires Last 747-400

Wed May 29, 2019 3:48 pm

Good day everyone. Another sad day in aviation as we have another airline retire their final 747-400, in this case Kuwait Airways. I posted a link to Simple Flying for their article if anyone wants to read this article. I believe this is either the 2nd or 3rd airline to retire their last 747 this year.

Used to see it in Heathrow regularly 5 years ago but I think it's mostly been used as VIP transport in recent years?

Kuwait Airways single Boeing 744 9K-ADE was taken out of VIP service two years ago and has been fully part of the Kuwait Airways fleet ever since mostly operating between Kuwait and the Gulf states. Her last flight was on the 31 January 2019 operating flight KU620 from Doha Hamad International Airport to Kuwait. She has since been ferried to Enschede in the Netherlands for scrapping by AELS Aircraft-End-of-Life-Solutions.
