A quick update on the new arrivals to Cotswold Airport for scrapping. These lot have all arrived in the last 3-6 months to be parted out by Air Salvage International Ltd
Here’s some photos from around this time last year
Now, let’s take look at the aircraft on the ground at EGBP as of 19th March
Boeing 727-269(A) M-FTOH was initially sent to EGBP in October for storage while she waited for a new owner. Unfortunately, she’s not looking so healthy any more and a new owner is nowhere to be seen! Anyone interested in buying a vintage 727?
Ex Air France Airbus A340-311 F-GLZH std at EGBP 01. Mar 2017. She’s still in one piece but she won’t stay that way for long…
Ex TAM Linhas Aereas/LATAM Airlines Brasil Airbus A319-132 PT-MZC (std at EGBP 07. Sep 2016) during parting out
GA Telesis have acquired two Ex Thai Airways International Boeing 777-2D7(ER)s and re-registered them as N175GT (Ex HS-TJE, stored at EGBP 23. Dec 2016) & N176GT (Ex HS-TJF, std at EGBP 12. Jan 2017).
They are slowly being parted out with Trent 700 Engines being removed
Close up with N175GT. Note the crude method of re-registration, a simple spray paint can does the job!
Air Atlanta Icelandic (Ex Saudia) Boeing 747-4H6 TF-AAE with missing engines, std at EGBP 27. Oct 2016.
The crazy thing about this aircraft? When I was 3 months old, she was the first aircraft I ever flew on, registered as 9M-MPI with Malaysia Airlines. Of course, I remember nothing of the flight but my dad logs all the flights he has been on. Funny how these things work out!
Thanks for checking out my photos! All taken on a Canon EOS 700D with 18-135mm & 70-200mm Lenses!
