A mighty Queen of the Skies found in an abandoned area in Pudong. It previously flew with UPS and Pan Am. After years of storage it was shipped in parts from the USA in 85 containers and reassembled on the grounds of an aviation theme park then left abandoned. Previous registration likely to be N681UP.

I did a little research of my own on this frame, and I couldn't find much. So I went through UPS' fleet of 747-123s during their operation time and have narrowed it down to possible being N691UP. I say that as I read it was "presumed broken up" but not confirmed broken up. I may be wrong but it points to that registration. Which would make it L/N: 7 and C/N: 19641. Again, I may be wrong.

Happy Flying!

Thanks for your info! I am not 100% sure but it seems this really was N691UP. I corrected the photo data.

I agree, feel sad to see a 747 in this condition.

This can't be N691UP. That was a 747-121 (Pan Am) which was broken up at GYR in early 2002. This is a 747-123, which was originally delivered to American.

That's correct, N691UP was a -121. The 747 in picture seems to be N691UP, I already submit a correction. Thanks!

Do you think that by any chance it could be N677UP? It had an interesting history...Is it still alive?

Hi gzm, I think that's not possible. N677UP had most of its windows removed and replaced with metal plates in the early 2000s, like other UPS 747-100s still flying at that time. This frame still has windows along the main deck.

No way this is N691UP! She was cut up into little pieces.

Hi guys, I just visited here 2 weeks ago.
When I was standing very close to the nose gear, I noticed that there was a really hazy "681" on the hatch cover of nose gear. So believe me, this must be N681UP.
