I could not see any reg or markings.
Looks like all reg / flag markings etc were overpainted in blue certainly by the 3rd August.

Also think the ex-Thai 777 should read N176GT

Thanks

Re: LOG: Kemble 22/4/17

If it helps with the ex-Jet2 airframes, there are currently five on the field. Airframes have been moving around a lot in recent days, so I can't be too accurate on precise positions, other than their general locations. The first Jet2 airframe from the most recent batch (G-CELD), has long since been...

Looking across from the A429, the B747-400 is on the right, with the B777-200's next to it.

Which B777-200 is which.

MTIA

N175GT is on the left of the trio, with N176GT in the middle. Both frames are engineless.

Re: East Midlands 19/10/1974 Channel Airways Viscount

If it appeared stored / derelict, then it was most likely G-ATUE. I'm almost certain that it was the only Channel Airways Viscount not scrapped at Southend. It was certainly in a derelict state at EMA in August 1976, so is likely the one you're after. If it was active on that date, then ............?

Maltatripper's identified G-CELD has spent the longest time of all the Jet2s on the field and is currently on jacks/pallets in an advanced state of disassembly.

On 11.07.15, Maltatripper reported that airframe as 'EI-IXA'. Think it still bears its Italian regn I-BIXA

Kemble Arrival - BA747 G-BNLZ

Showing up on the airfield webcam parked on D-Site is the very recent arrival from Cardiff of ex- BA 747 G-BNLZ. Notified by our good friends of S.W.A.G. as arriving for scrapping.

Fitting that this British stalwart should end her days in the UK, instead of Victorville.

Was there on the same day. G-CELC (it was definitely an ex- Jet-2 c/s) was nose-in, deep in hangar H2 (the one nearest the control tower). Without a nose cone. hangar H1 (the furthest one away) contained the B737 N216AP - positioned tail-in & looking fairly intact - , plus unidentified light singles...

The last remaining centre sections of ex-Vueling A320 EC-ICS were seen in the scrapping area within the last couple of weeks. The red/blue banded A320(1) sounds like the ex-Meridiana A320 EI-DEZ - it was last seen propped up on railway sleepers, outside the nearest ASI hangar to the tower. The other...
