G-BNLY at LAS cargo terminal?

Anyone know what it could possibly be doing here? This actually isn't the first time I have seen a BA 747 parked here.

Apparently she has been sitting there since the 4th. How severe does this issue seem to be if that's the case?

She was in Austin for almost four days just before this. Had a hole in the wing of some sort. Not sure if this is related.

Looking at Flightaware, she ferried AUS-LHR on May 28, then looks like it rejoined service on May 31, so this is likely another issue.

What's so unusual about a 26 year old Brit wanting to spend a few extra days in Vegas? Just hope she's got her sunscreen on.

Even less unusual for a 26 year old Brit to have a damaged undercarriage.

Better pic of her. Still soaking some sunlight a day later apparently. I also heard it is an engine issue?

NLY needs a replacement engine. Will be there for a few more days yet I imagine.

If by "nice place" you mean 120F/49C+ temperature at ground level, due to heat radiating back off the apron's concrete..... sure.

Better concrete than asphalt....... too bad there isn't a material that can handle the weight that basically is neutral in those environments.
I loved working in both PHX and LAS, but the extra heat from all of the surroundings made it suck.

I'd rather change an engine in Vegas,in june,than northern Canada in winter. Where your fingers freeze and the wind is howling and snow is blowing. I'd rather sweat in a low humidity environment than freeze.

Will this be the first of the retro fleet to wear a non retro painted replacement part or will the same cowling accommodate the new engine ?

Unless the cowling itself is damaged, I would think they would use the same cowling.

The thrust reverser is part of the engine on a 524 so cannot be exchanged.. however the fan cowl doors and intake can be swopped on to the replacement.

Slightly unrelated... but as of 6/10/2019 on 7:10 PM, two of the three BA retro liveries are at LAS!

It seems G-CIVB decided to visit its sister ship to give it best wishes as she's repaired?

Back on topic... anyone got a clue as to when BNLY will depart?

This Landor livery is by far the best IMO. What a good looking plane. Awesome that BA did this retro 747 thing, really something for us enthusiasts

Amen to that. However, having flown G-BNLY to LAS in April, it was clear that she’s a very tired bird inside and in need of a deep refurbishment or retirement.
I only turn left when boarding aircraft. Well, mostly. All right, sometimes. OH OKAY - rarely.

And she is indeed due for a deep refurbishment at the end of summer.

:checkmark: I flew CIVB LHR-DEN on Friday. I was really hoping for a retro livery, so I'm glad I was lucky enough to get one, but her refurbishment this December can't come soon enough.

Oh oops... I mostly say three because I only really think of the 747s and not the random 320. Sorry!

It's unseasonably cool in Vegas right now, only 85F. So right now it quite nice!
