Are these flying to Texas or somewhere else in the states?
The five aircraft have been sold to GE Materials which has a facility in the DFW area. Does anyone know if these 747s are going to fly to somewhere near DFW for scrapping? I can't think of any airport around DFW that has scrapping capabilities?
These 744's are not going anywhere, due to EHTW safety permits Source: https://www.aviation24.be/airports/twen ... lands/amp/
It seems they knew from the start these 744's would only be allowed to land and never take off again. The first two even landed without the correct permits in place!
