    That is an ex-Saudi Arabian Airlines 747 and on doing a bit of digging, they appear to have sent at least four of their 747s to the airfield for scrapping. Shame that the reg has been painted over.
    i photoshopped the reg out mate i respected the wishes of the bone yard owners

    Doesn't sound 'pathetic' at all. I think it's nice that you felt that way & good on you for being honest about it too.
    I go onto you tube sometimes & watch old ships on their final sailing to the breakers, same with old trains too! They've all got history & would have great stories to tell if they could- just like a human! Boeing 747  and a few other planes (permission visit)
