Do we have an up to date list of the factory and converted 747-400Fs that are currently parked?
We've had the discussion recently on the parked LH 747s and to be parked LH frames serving as donors to previously thought dead, desert dwelling converted 747-400Fs. It could be the MHV ex-EVA frame is the first of many. Overall, it would be much cheaper to find a converted jet and rejuvenate it than convert an already operational jet.
Also, good to see Fly Pro's 747-200F ER-BAR hard at work since rejoining the worldwide freighter fleet. Wonder what other 747 Classics are possibly being prepped to re enter service?!?
Jumping to another thought...
Anyone have visibility on N705AA? A recently brought out of the desert 727F. It was supposed to go to Astral in Africa but continues to show as resting in Barbados after departing the US.
We do now
