UA 777-222ER N219UA At SFO

Sun Nov 15, 2015 1:27 am

Just noticed N219UA parked in a remote area at SFO, with engines removed and all doors and handles taped as if it were in long term storage in the desert - but in SF. Anyone know what's up?
Cheers.

It last flew 23/09/2015. https://planefinder.net/data/aircraft/N219UA
No idea why it would be like that.
